Mini urn as a keepsake box
The LittleWood© is a mini urn or keepsake box in which you can save ashes, a lock of hair, some sand (for example if your loved one’s ashes were scattered at sea), a letter, an earring, a piece of fabric or some other small memento. There is a lockable brass cavity with a volume of 6ml at the heart of the mini urn.
Pick me up and hold me
When you first see the wooden urn, all you want to do is touch it and find out what it is. The organic shape and smooth structure invite you in a natural way to pick it up and hold it. The great thing is that this little urn fits in your hand and the wood takes on your body temperature.
Lovely urn to display
The mini urn has the appearance of a small home accessory which suits every interior. You place it next to a photo frame, vase or on a dresser. And if you feel the need, you can pick it up for a moment when you walk past so that in a unique way, your loved one is still a part of your daily life.
Filling the mini urn
The compartment can be accessed from the bottom of the mini urn. It's easy to open using the Allen key supplied. You then just place your memento inside and close the compartment again. And if at any time you want to change the contents, that's no problem.
What can you use it for?
How you use the mini urn is a personal choice. Some people like to place it on a home altar or bedside cabinet, while others hold it in their hands when sitting on the couch or carry it with them in their handbags. The mini urns are also a perfect way of sharing the ashes among family or friends.
The mini urns are traditionally handcrafted in Dongen. We use sustain-ably sourced wood in order to limit the environmental impact. The traditional process of sanding, gluing and lacquering is very labor-intensive and gives these high-quality products their exclusive character.
