CHISTANN the contemporary eco-coffin for families wanting to be involved in making and decorating the coffin.
Designed as a DIY coffin, flat-packed and shipped by regular parcel companies. Saves up to 80% carbon emmisions compared to transporting a regular coffin from factory to place of use.
The 'IKEA-style coffin' is made from sustainable and biodegradable materials, suitable for cremation and burial. A good looking environmental friendly coffin which is ready-to-assemble by family or friends within 30 minutes without the need for special tools or glue. As simple and straight forward as an IKEA cupboard.
With 6 load-bearing beech handles to carry a weight of up to 120kg.
The lid can be closed in two stages. the lower part can remain closed during a viewing or wake leaving flowers or decoration on the closed part on the coffin.
A real wooden eco-coffin for the price of cardboard. Since 2017 we have shipped almost 2,000 CHISTANN's to families in the Neterlands and internationally.
This summer we will also launch a larger version the CHISTANN XL, the inner length will be 210cm and width 65cm to accomodate larger postures.
