The Thick shroud's cotton canvas

Our Thick shroud is made with sturdy yet breathable canvas. This canvas is woven with unbleached biological cotton. This gives the canvas its natural ecru color. The sturdy fabric is easy to fold, and it has a solid look.

In the often hectic days of processing and mourning, intimate moments are very valuable. A shroud can be folded alone or by a small group of relatives, which is a memorable ritual. The extent to which the shroud is open or closed can be decided by yourself. It is also possible to close the shroud a little further every day, extending the process of final closure. Have a look at our shroud folding instructions.

The cotton we use for our canvas shrouds is 100% biological.  The cotton is grown and produced in Izmir, Turkey. This area is known for its beautiful cotton species, which can be seen and felt in the fabric. The entire production process of this canvas is GOTS-certified.

Can a shroud be used for a cremation?

Yes, it is possible to use a shroud for a cremation, as long as it is combined with a carrier. Some crematoriums require a carrier to have a flat bottom plate and an upright edge. In such cases, a cremation input board must be used. Always discuss the situation with the crematorium to prevent misunderstandings.
