The Shroud Maker Lena Shrouds - Creative shrouds for Natural Burials
The Shroud Maker : 
I make creative shrouds for natural burials. My shrouds are made with sustainable and biodegradable fabrics, such as linen and hemp, making them environmentally friendly and good for the future of our planet.
They are made as cyanotypes, a process which uses sunlight and benign chemicals to create an image.They are for burial only and not appropriate for cremations.

The images themselves are similar to tattoos, like stories on the body.  I design images for the shroud to wrap the body as a beautiful last gift before burial.
