Celebrating the launch of a second sustainable brand

Posted on: 06/07/2022

A new brand designing and producing premium sustainable cardboard coffins has been launched in Ferndown. Parley Green, based at Ferndown Industrial Estate, has been developed over the last 18 months to as the premium alternative to simple cardboard coffins.

After successfully pivoting in 2020 to manufacture millions of face shields for the NHS, the Products division of the Mauveworx business also launched The Toy Tribe, the sustainable plastic-free toy brand in late 2021. Mauveworx‘s main business is experienced in cardboard engineering through producing printed promotional displays for some of the UK’s biggest brands and retailers.

James Martin, Managing Director, said: “After reviewing the market we realised there was real opportunity to bridge the significant gap between a traditional wooden coffin, and the alternative ‘box-like’ cardboard ones available. Over the last year and a half we’ve been busy developing a product that ultimately looks like wood, but has all the sustainability credentials of recycled cardboard. An extremely eco-friendly alternative for the environmentally conscious.”
The range includes various realistic wood effects, as well as bespoke designs, all created and manufactured in our Ferndown factory.
James also said: “Our launch at the recent National Funeral Exhibition created a big stir and a healthy order book, particularly for our innovative flat-pack direct coffin, which has a patent pending due to its innovative space saving design”
