You're right @New Mexico Brant , they are increasingly popular over here, especially when combined with woodland burial sites. It's so expensive to die over here!Very nice Walter! Wicker is an amazing material. It is the best value in coffins for anyone who is interested. As a kid growing up in the antiques business, I remember going to numerous estate auctions and there would be a wicker coffin that was auctioned-off. Apparently door to door salesmen would sell them. When the buyer met his/her passing, often family members were too embarrassed and would ignore the awaiting wicker coffin, hence a new shiny walnut or mahogany wood vessel was purchased. Even today, wicker is the bargain in funerary internment. I am thinking about adding one to my closet or attic for future use; will my children ignore my purchase?
They are even a better value if you search the inter-webs.
