Natural Coffins

Banana Coffin

The banana leaf coffins come in a traditional shape or a square end shape. The square end has a similar look and feel to an English casket. 

The banana leaves support both the structural design of the coffin and the environment, while providing a beautiful finish. Based around a sturdy timber frame, the leaf rope retains its shape with a subtle elegance.
