There are many ways to customize you or a loved one’s funeral. From the music, to the flowers, to the tribute video, everything is chosen to reflect whose funeral it is. Shouldn’t that be the case with the casket too? If you’re looking for something a little more unique than a wooden or metal casket, one of these 5 casket makers could be for you.

Glitter Coffins

The Glitter Coffin Company is a UK based business that will build you a beautiful, hand upholstered coffin that is encrusted with glitter. Each coffin is made to order and can be made with one of 18 beautiful glitter colors. The glitter is placed on a 100% biodegradable cotton backing and made with a non Chlorinated Plastic, so they can be used for both burial and cremation.

If you want a coffin that is covered in a beautiful photo, Expression Coffins will flawlessly wrap the coffin with an image of your choice. They have several categories to choose from, or you can create a completely custom coffin using up to 6 of your own images. Expression Coffins will plant a tree for every coffin purchased to offset the materials used.

Burial Pods

We’ve all seen urns that mix cremated ashes with soil to grow a tree, but what if you could skip the cremation step? Capsula Mundi is a project that will bury a departed person in a biodegradable egg shaped pod with a tree placed on top of the pod so the tree can serve as a memorial for many lifetimes to come.

The car opens with a hinge top like a traditional casket and is fabricated with fiberglass and can be painted in a variety of colors and designs.
