The versatile banana leaf, a never ending biproduct of growing bananas, is collected after the plant has produced its fruit. It is then dried, twisted and woven into these coffins together with white rattan to give it an exotic and refined texture. All of these banana products are made in World Fair Trade Organisation accredited workshops.
Pandanus or wild pineapple is the environmentally friendly alternative to seagrass, a plant which grows in warm coastal waters. When coiled and woven, it’s almost indistinguishable from seagrass. Seagrass grows predominantly in shallow waters. It is home to many nursery fish and helps to prevent coastline erosion. Seagrass is therefore an incredibly important plant which needs to be conserved. Pandanus, on the other hand, is a prolific and fast growing plant which is easy to sustain.
Pine is a casket made from sustainable pine with a smooth surface, unwaxed and untreated, allowing the natural grain to be seen at its best on the gently curved lid.
The Leafpod is a simpler version of the Leaf cocoon without the cover. The basic construction is the same.
