Types of Coffin

All our picture coffins are available in a variety of styles, from traditional wood to eco-friendly rattan. Find out more below and please call us if you have any questions. 


Traditional Wood 

Our wooden picture coffins are always a popular choice. Approved for burial and cremation and at most natural burial grounds, these are sourced from FSC-accredited companies using wood from sustainable sources. The designs are printed onto an environmentally-friendly paper wrap, which is then applied by hand to ensure the highest level of quality and craftsmanship.

All wooden coffins come with the genuine Colourful Coffins® shoulder decorations.

Available in a wide range of colour options, ranging from plain brown or white through to stunning multi-coloured patterns or pictures, all designs are printed and applied to the coffin on a biodegradable material wrap. Ultra-strong thanks to their honeycomb-style Beeboard® construction, these picture coffins combine high quality with unique and beautiful style.

Made from ethically sourced rattan, this coffin features a pretty rattan weave in an oval shape, with no see-through and no creaking. They are 100% biodegradeable and skillfully hand crafted to ensure they are practical and fit for purpose.

American Style Caskets

American-style caskets provide an impressive alternative to a traditional wooden coffin or casket. There are two options – either the ‘true’ American casket, which is made out of metal, or an English version comprising of 100% solid tulip wood from sustainable sources. Both caskets are ideally suited to bespoke artwork designs and illustrations, and families can also choose the option of having a design on the inside of the casket lid. The complete choice of Colourful Coffins’ designs is available in this range.

The metal American caskets are suitable for burial only. They are supplied with solid brass handles (which can be painted to match any design), a luxury lining and pillow interior available in white, pink or blue.
