Narrow Ridge is an official reseller of the Kinkaraco 100% pure linen PURELIGHT burial shroud.

KINKARACO ® is a woman owned certified GREEN company.

From the front it appears to be a simple wrapped piece of cloth but inside it contains all the sophistication and strength needed for a successful, easy shroud burial – 4 handles for carrying, a board sewn inside the spine for stability and 4 lowering straps attached.

Made of 100% European linen in White Ivory. LINEN is the original fabric used for everything (including for burial shrouds) from the cradle of civilization. Made from plants in Northern Europe, refined in Ancient Egypt and highly prized by the Roman Empire, linen was the cloth used in the traditional Jewish funeral preparation of Jesus Christ by Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus. 

In keeping with our values to keep burial costs at a minimum, Narrow Ridge passes along a substantial discount with free local pick up.
