If you read nothing else today, we urge you to read the Federal FTC Funeral Rule. Knowing the law can empower your family to save thousands of dollars when planning a funeral. (Click here)
we help you take ownership of the funeral ceremony
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 those choices should not be dictated by the funeral industry. We want families to 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.
We currently offer these CASKETS:
Southern Yellow Pine
New River Casket
We can build custom caskets to honor the unique needs of different communities.
starting at $1800
