The Glitter Coffin Company uses the same type of glitter as used on Jimmy Choo shoes, so you can be assured quality is sky high.

There’s plenty of choice when it comes to colours, with coffins available in silver, gold, pink, blue, black, purple and opal white. With each one looking supremely divine.

Inspired by the huge success of their original glitter based company, The Glitter Furniture Company which is popular among celebrities including Katie Price, husband Chris began working on his new idea by working closely with a funeral director in Plymouth.

Chris said: “I decided one day to do something different, we’ve had The Glitter Furniture Company for two years and I wanted to progress.

“So I decided I would buy a coffin and cover it in glitter to see what it would look like.

“My wife was surprised to find me googling a coffin on our family eBay account after I had the idea.

“I then spoke to John at the Wyatt Brother’s funeral directors. Working closely with them, we had one made up and it just spoke for itself – when I brought it out of the van, the sun was shining and it just dazzled.

“This was about a year ago but we’ve only just started to promote the business now as we had to wait for the coffins to pass the FFMA coffin testing requirements for them to be able to be used for cremation and burials.

“We’ve passed that and so now we’re sending examples to funeral directors across the country.”

Fifteen coffins have so far been sold across the country and the company hopes to provide more now they have begun officially promoting themselves.

The company pride themselves on being able to deliver anywhere in the world, however, all orders need to made through a funeral director who will then place an order directly with Chris and Dawn.

Chris explained: “We don’t take orders as such, its supply to trade only - we want funeral directors to still give the whole package to a family when someone passes away.

“What we suggest is if the funeral director doesn’t have one of our examples then ask them to contact us directly.”

Death may be deveasting but saying goodbye to a loved one certainly isn’t dreary with one of these beautifully crafted coffins.
