If you like a reserved and natural design, a wooden urn is the right choice. It is a material that is symbolic of the natural cycle. Everything that is gone becomes something new. Like nothing else, the wooden urn represents this ecological cycle, and thus life. Urn and ashes decompose in the soil over time, and the minerals and nutrients are passed to the next generation of trees and plants. New life arises. This thought helps the processing of grief and pain. Wood combines nature’s warmth with the last loving feeling of the deceased person. A wooden urn is incomparable and dignified for the final journey. Lacquered wooden urns radiate quality and sophistication An alternative to the untreated urn Looking for something natural, yet distinct from wood? For both aspects, we recommend our lacquered urns. You decide if you prefer gloss or classic white and black. Mementi offers a range of cubic and lacquered cremation urns made from wood, with some related to specific themes, such as our sporting urns. Root wood urns - a natural jewel among urns Natural and special When dying, we return to our roots – where we came from. A root wood urn perfectly represents this natural cycle. It is made from one piece of root wood. The selected root wood is caringly milled to maintain the root wood’s special characteristics. This is German craftsmanship in its purest form. Neither the artist nor Mementi can tell how the root wood urn might look like. Each one is entirely unique. Tree trunk urns Add a piece of pure nature to your loved one's funeral that is beautiful and peaceful As unique as the root wood urns are our tree trunk urns.

Therefore, the tree trunk urn is the most natural urn made from wood we can offer you. Just as the wood goes back into the earth, man also returns to his origins. The completeness of the piece of tree trunk represents the closeness to nature, as well as the beauty of nature. The unique bark is not only a protection for the ashes, but also symbolises the individuality of the deceased.
