Wooden Urns: A Natural Choice
For those who choose cremation as a more “natural" alternative to burial, a wood urn for ashes is a logical substitute. Wood is, after all, a renewable natural resource, and all of our urns for ashes are handcrafted, produced with practices that are not harmful to the environment. In addition, because each piece of wood is naturally unique in grain and color, each urn is a unique piece of art – as unique, in fact, as the person whose remains it holds.
