Evergreen Shrouds
 
One of the most ancient forms of burial was to wind the body in a natural fibre cloth such as linen, wool or cotton.  Many people today still choose this option for themselves or their loved ones. Our hand-made shrouds are an economical and environmentally friendly choice and echo this time-honoured tradition for burial or cremation.    

The Mourning Cloak

This shroud is made from unbleached cotton with jute handles for a beautifully natural and simple alternative to a coffin.

 

The Mourning Cloak is well suited for direct to ground green burial with its sturdy double stitched construction, canvas backing with sewn-in pocket for back support board*. The jute webbing makes six comfortable carry handles as well as making this shroud a safe and secure way to convey your loved one. Tested to 260 pounds.
