The Mendip is a curved end wicker coffin woven from our highest quality buff and steamed willow. It is named after the Mendip Hills which run between Weston-super-Mare and Frome. Part of the hills has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The plait, handles and/or bands can be woven in buff, steamed, antique buff or white willow. Natural dyed coloured willow can also be incorporated into a design. If you prefer this wicker coffin in a traditional shape, please see our Blackdown.
