Rectangular Willow Ashes Caskets
Our Rectangular Willow ashes caskets, also known as wicker ashes caskets, are beautifully handwoven in Somerset using traditional skills honed over 60 years. A lasting legacy and a personal tribute made with the original care and dedication that has driven our family business for over four generations.
Each willow ashes casket is carefully handcrafted to every individual request and can be made to match the accompanying coffin. Choose from two main colour finishes, buff or gold willow. Then select from one of 13 natural hand-dyed colours to personalise bands of woven willow into the ashes casket, paying subtle homage to your loved one. The caskets are finished with natural wooden toggle and loop closures.
You can be sure you will receive nothing less than exceptional craftsmanship.

Please note our willow ashes caskets are unique, individual and use natural materials. The look and finishes may vary slightly from the pictures shown, this is part of the natural product.
Choose from two main colour finishes
Our natural buff willow finish ranges from a dark orange hue to a chestnut-brown appearance. The colouration comes from the willow being boiled for over eight hours before being stripped ready for use. Willow is a coppice material and grows naturally from a crown, the crowns are arranged in rows which are harvested annually.
Weatherbeaten Gold is our signature finish. The willow has a golden hue which holds a subtle weathered appearance. For Weatherbeaten Gold we keep back the lightest harvest willow, we then boil for over 8 hours before stripping and treating to produce this unique colour.
Choose hand-dyed colours for personalisation.
If you like you can select colours of hand-dyed willow to be carefully woven into distinctive bands around the top and bottom of your willow ashes casket. The dye used in our colouring process is a natural fabric dye derived from natural salts and colouring agents.
Each willow ashes casket comes complete with a quality cotton drawstring ashes bag inside.
Engraved solid oak plaques can be inscribed with up to 3 lines of text for a truly personal touch. Each tiny plaque is carefully attached to the casket lid using twisted jute cord.
