Return to Sender - manufacturer and designer of eco-friendly coffins, caskets and urns, Products - artisan

By: Return To Sender  05-Apr-2012

This model was named the 'Artisan' having been initially chosen by families of architects, artists and craftspeople. Many people are attracted to the woodgrain and wool fleece, environmentalists have chosen it for the minimal use of materials and eco-iconic appearance and others have chosen it just to express individuality. The Artisan's unique design encourages celebration of life rather than mourning death and is particularly suited to those who refused a life of grey conformity.

Families wanting an open casket will find the low sides a welcome feature - mourners can sit with the deceased without having to stand and peer down into a box.

The included mattress and pillow are wool fleece.  The timber is sanded and coated with a light natural oil. If a fuller finish is desired additional natural waxes can be applied by the family.
