Carolina Casket Makers Collective (CCMC) believes in the beauty and simplicity of a 'plain pine box' and strives to provide caskets directly to families. 

We believe families should have choices and reclaim end-of-life ceremonies, whether they're at home by the garden or in a funeral home. We also believe families shouldn't spend enormous amounts on bells and whistles, if all they want is a plain pine box.  

Our handcrafted vessels are simple, but they are made to respect the Earth and honor each departing Life with dignity.
