The Polden is a traditional shape wicker coffin woven from our highest quality buff and white willow. It is named after the Polden Hills in Somerset. These 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. This coffin can be customised by incorporating other natural willow finishes into the design. Choose from; antique buff, barked, buff, steamed and/or natural dyed coloured willow.
