Woven Farewell Coffins is a unique willow coffin business based in Devon. Female-led, the company focuses on adding to the momentum of truly sustainable funeral options, and
supporting family-involved funeral options. As well as using local and biodegradable materials, Woven Farewell is one of the only coffin companies in the UK to donate to charity - with
5% of profits supporting the Woodland Trust. This represents the importance of death nestled within life to founder Sophia Campbell-Shaw.

Woven Farewell Coffins supply direct to families as well as Funeral Directors round the country, with a hub in East Devon and
