This is a bamboo shroud made from tightly woven, unbleached bamboo yarn, a highly sustainable and renewable material. The cradle is woven with dark, barked willow and both the shroud and cradle are 100% biodegradable – an ideal choice for burial. The shroud can be used without the cradle as it has carry handles sewn into it. There is space for a backboard to be inserted into the shroud for stability. The cradle is not suitable for cremation. A backboard and supporting board would be needed if the person is being cremated.
