Flowers have long been used to express our deepest sentiments... did you know that placing flowers at burial sites is the oldest documented human ritual, dating to 62,000 BC? Our Fresh Flowers Urn will imbue your loved one's life celebration with a sense of love, respect, and beauty.

Small cotton fasteners help secure flowers of your choosing* to the lid until the urn is released. As the urn sinks, flowers will float to the surface, adding a natural beauty and grace to the ceremony.

Float time of the urn will vary depending on the weight of the ashes, weather and water conditions. The urn will biodegrade naturally over time in large bodies of water. *This urn is designed for a full portion of adult ashes which will provide the necessary weight for sinking. For a smaller portion of ashes, weighted material such as sand must be added to the urn in order for it to sink properly.*

Available in four sea-inspired colors: Natural; Shell White; Surf Blue; Coral; and Seagrass Green.

This urn was designed by me and handmade in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico by skilled artisans using recycled paper and plant-based glue. It is 100% biodegradable and non-toxic to sea life. Your purchase helps provide jobs with a living wage for artisans working in a traditional art form.

*Please no plastic or silk flowers
