Musgrove Willows are proud to offer a range of willow ‘wicker’ coffins that reflect the unique landscape of the Somerset Levels and the surrounding area where we live and farm our willow, ‘withies’.
Each of the environmentally friendly willow coffins that we offer in our Somerset Range of Willow Coffins has been beautifully and sensitively handwoven with the utmost care and attention to detail by our skilled basket makers using our own willow, on our farm, at Westonzoyland in the heart of the Somerset Levels.
Musgrove Willows was founded in the late 1920s and four generations later, we continue to grow high quality Somerset willow and produce, using sustainable and traditional methods, strong, handmade wicker coffins and caskets.
For centuries sustainable willow has been used for its strength, beauty and practicality throughout our homes and lives. In these environmentally aware times, wicker coffins are becoming a more environmentally sound option as a more sustainable alternative to wood.
Our coffins are appropriate for burial, cremation, woodland and green burial sites and can be made to your required size within 48 hours.
