Mangawhai - woven cotton shroud
  • Mangawhai - woven cotton shroud


    To create the prints on this pure cotton shroud, local windfall autumn leaves of alder, grevillea, pohutukawa and olive have been gathered. These botanicals are then wrapped up with the fabric and, using a completely eco friendly process, the  colours and prints from the leaves are infused permanently into the fibres.  Dignified, exquisite, natural and unique.


    This shroud comes in a set including 6 metres of cotton ribbon to wrap around the body and secure the fabric closed. A drawstring cotton bag completes the set as a memento keepsake.


    Please refer to the section on shrouding for instructions on how to wrap. You are welcome to contact the maker personally, by phone or email, with any questions on shrouding.
