The Ash Casket is beautifully designed and handmade from sustainable Australian timber. Skill in joinery techniques is used to create an entirely timber construction with no nails or screws. Being handcrafted from natural timber, each casket is a unique vessel for the body at the end of life.

How it works

Biodegradability is an essential feature of the design. When buried, the Ash Casket breaks down entirely to form humus, an organic component of soil which is vital for its fertility.

The most beautiful smell of wood

By: on 6 November 2018
Our mother was always such an artistic and environmentally aware person so my sisters and I decided she should be buried as sustainably and beautifully as possible. We ended up choosing a sustainable coffin made from Victorian Ash that was hand crafted using no glues or metal or any chemicals whatsoever. It was a masterpiece of craftsmanship that I know our mother would have loved. It also gave off the most beautiful smell of wood that permeated the chapel. Everyone said how beautiful it was. I feel it was a real celebration of Mum and had those touches that made it a very positive experience.

Beautifully Made

When my much loved elderly mother passed away earlier this year we, her family, wanted a coffin that was made from timber that was environmentally sustainable and beautifully made. As a person who loved good design and craftsmanship, my mum would have been so pleased with the honey coloured, fragrant wood of the casket that was made by an expert woodworker and organised for us by Green Burials International. We were all greatly comforted by it.
