POLDEN

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. If you prefer this wicker coffin with a curved end, please see our Quantock.

  • Hand woven by a member of our skilled basket making team.
  • Our willow is grown, processed and naturally dyed on our farm.
  • Our willow is sustainable, natural & eco-friendly.
  • You are welcome to visit us to help weave the coffin.
