Willow Carrier and Shrouds
The Passages Willow Carrier is produced from sustainable, biodegradable willow and is designed for dignified viewing of a dressed or shrouded body. It features a rigid paulownia wood and bamboo-reinforced base, with flax rope and seagrass handles which can be used for carrying. The carrier contains no metal or plastic components and features a fitted, water resistant natural cotton lining and matching pillow. They can either be buried or cremated with the deceased, or the body can be removed from the carrier and it can be re-used again after the burial or cremation.
Bamboo Shroud With Handles
Passages shrouds are suitable for burial or cremation, and are fully biodegradable. They can be used as an eco-friendly and unique alternative to clothing for use with a Wicker Casket or Willow Carrier.
To simplify the movement and transport of a shrouded body, we recommend using our Willow Carrier with all shrouded burials or cremations. The shroud can also be used on its own; a sewn-in pouch allows a rigid board to be inserted under the shroud to provide support for the body if a casket or willow carrier is not being used.
Bamboo Shroud Without Handles
A simpler version of our shroud has only decorative ribbons, without handles or a pocket for a backboard, and must be used with Willow Carrier, Wicker Casket, or Wicker Coffin. It is essentially an elegant wrap for the body.
