ARKA Acorn Urn

ARKA Acorn Urn

Acorn Urn CollectionAcorn Urns are fully biodegradable and ideal for the burial of cremation ashes. Available in eight finishes, the shaped lid and base are made from moulded recycled kraft and paper. The stalk of the lid is made from a special twist of tissue paper.

The coloured urns are finished with a paper made from mulberry pulp and, like the Dutch gold foil urn, they are supplied individually boxed. An optional 100% cotton draw string, inner bag is also available.

The Acorn Urns are hand finished in the UK. They are light weight (approx 260g). The urn base stands 22cm tall with a 19cm diameter at the top opening, creating a volume of 4 litres.

ARKA Acorn Urns are available in choice of 7 colours and Dutch Gold Leaf:
Moss Green, Dark Green, Stone, Russet, Purple, Yellow, Turquoise

Dutch Gold Leaf – the base is prepared with dark red paper before the Dutch Gold Leaf (an alloy of copper and zinc) is applied. Small cracks and breaks that naturally appear in the surface of the leaf, allow the underlying red surface to show through, adding to the overall richness of the finish.

Cotton Ashes Bag – optional extra
Can be supplied with a 100% cotton, draw string ashes bag for the interior.
