The Loop Living Cocoon™ is grown in just 7 days in our growing facility in Delft, The Netherlands, from local mushroom species and upcycled hemp fibers. This makes it 100% natural and GreenLeave certified. The Cocoon comes with a soft bed of moss as standard. You can opt for either the ‘Wild’ or ‘Calm’ Loop Living Cocoon™.

Practicalities during the funeral
The Loop Living Cocoon ™ is certified for traditional burials, natural burials and cremations. The Cocoon can be carried using the six integrated jute handles, or alternatively, shouldered for ease of carrying. During the burial it can be lowered with a mechanical lift system, as well as with ropes. Due to its hydrophobic properties, the Cocoon is perfectly suitable for use during a wake on a mobile mortuary refrigerator or for funerals in the rain. The Cocoon™ can be stored indefinitely when it is placed in a dry and ventilated space, just like a conventional coffin and should be stored horizontally.

Bed of moss
The Loop Living Cocoon comes with a soft bed and pillow of moss as standard. The moss originates from the Netherlands, and is 100% natural.

Bed of wool
Opt for a soft bed of 100% Dutch wool sourced from Kempisch heath sheep, renowned for conservation efforts in the Kempen region. Locally made in the Netherlands and Greenleave approved. The bed of wool comes with a pillow and blanket, with a density of 500 g/m2.

Hemp 
Replace the bed of moss with an elegant interior hemp lining. Hemp, a rapidly growing plant with minimal water requirements, is cultivated worldwide without the need for herbicides or insecticides. Our choice of Mediterranean hemp boasts impressive growth, reaching heights of 2.5 – 4.5 meters within just 130 – 150 days, making it one of the fastest-growing hemp species. Sourced and processed in Europe, where it is also spun and woven and is Greenleave approved. The hemp lining comes with a pillow and blanket, with a density of 345 g/m2.

Soft Bio-cotton 
Replace the bed of moss with a soft interior bio-cotton lining. The bio-cotton is a slightly thicker knitted fabric that is brushed on both sides. As a result, the fabric has a very light appearance and feels very soft. This fabric is made from organic cotton sourced from Turkey and has the GOTS label. The bio-cotton lining comes with a pillow and blanket, with a density of 320 g/m2.

“The first time I touched the coffin it was much softer and lighter than I had expected. It truly is a unique material, so it surprised me how versatile the coffin actually is in its normal use for funerals and cremations!”

Funeral director (The Hague, Netherlands)

“My grandmother and I like to spend time in the woods together. When she saw the living coffin on television, she expressed her desire to become part of this natural cycle of life as well, so we reached out to Loop. The personal attention we received during the process was heartwarming and made the experience for me and my grandmother both peaceful and respectful.”
