Ecological Linen and pearl-shell

This burial shroud is made of linen. Linen is a fine, airy fabric that is off-white in color. The linen is ecologically produced, which means that the shroud is well-suited for a natural funeral. The buttons are made of nacre, a naturally biodegradable material. This makes the shroud ideal for a natural burial.

The funeral gown's history

Our Linen shroud is inspired by the traditional Dutch burial gown. In various regions, it was a tradition for the bride to sew a shroud for herself and her future husband before their upcoming wedding. They would then wear these gowns on their wedding day and night. After this night, the gown was no longer worn, until it served as a burial gown.
