A burial shroud is a distinguished wrap for the body; also referred to as burial sheets, winding-cloths or winding sheets. Shrouds can be made from white cotton, wool, linen or other material that is made of natural fibers.
Your shroudage includes compartments for holding special objects, photographs, letters, poems, and or other symbols of affection
This is a very elegant design. The folds and ties are patterned after a Japanese gift wrapping method, where presents are enclosed in material, not paper. The edges are left unfinished (see picture) or is finished (hemmed under). This is a perfect cremation shroud.
A rope can be used for lowering if needed. However, most cemeteries prefer to utilize a casket lowering device & therefore do not use ropes.

A burial shroud is permitted by law. No federal state or local laws require container (coffin/casket) burials. Such a requirement is only made by individual cemeteries and for those buried on private property or in green cemeteries, no containers are necessary - in fact, shrouds are preferrable.
Under a U.S. federal law, 16 CFR Part 435 (known as the Funeral Rule), if a family provides a casket they purchased elsewhere, the establishment is required to accept the casket and use it in the services. If the casket is delivered direct to the funeral home from the manufacturer or store, they are required to accept delivery of the casket. The funeral home may not add any extra charges or fees to the overall bill if a family decides to purchase a casket elsewhere. Read More at the FTC's website.
