Oasis Coffins began life in 2006 with a simple idea. It must be possible to develop great products using natural materials abundantly available in rural Bangladesh; to source these materials sustainably, create quality jobs for local people, and see their lives and the environment impacted for good.
Now Oasis has its own dedicated product development and manufacturing unit in rural Bangladesh, where more than 150 people, many of them from economically marginalised backgrounds, have secure employment.
“We make beautiful, high quality products in an environment that gives people reliable employment and good working conditions. Our products are in demand from people who are becoming increasingly conscious of their impact on the environment and others. It is encouraging to know that in bereavement, we can give life into people and a community in Bangladesh. We want people to know where their products are coming from, and to know that what they buy can benefit people elsewhere.”
