The simple traditional shapes are self coloured in off white or brown paper with an unmistakeably hand made tactile surface. The close fitting lids may be secured with string. If required, some text can be added.
Although quite plain, the shapes do have a subtle content or character: understated or homely or friendly or elegant... Each Classic eco-urn is similar but never exactly the same as any other because it is bespoke, made by hand.
They lend themselves to DIY. The surface is delightful to paint or draw on, or to collage. Decorating is very engaging for children and adults alike and can be incorporated into the farewell ritual.
