The Polden is a traditional shape coffin woven from our highest quality buff and white willow. It is named after the Polden Hills in Somerset. These hills run from Puriton near Bridgwater in the west to Street in the east.
The main body of the Polden is woven with buff willow. White willow is used for the banding and the plait border on the lid edge. The design can be customised to incorporate antique buff, steamed, barked and/or natural dyed coloured willow.
If you prefer this coffin with a curved end, please see our Quantock.
