A Fond History of Burial Garments
The rule of simplicity that works so well in life also works great after death. Many families are now opting for burial shrouds instead of caskets to bury loved ones, asserting greater creative control over the aesthetics of the traditional American funeral. Join death educator Amy Cunningham for an engaging discussion of how shrouds and garments have been used for over a millennia in cultures across the globe. She'll also explore present-day, eco-friendly shroud making, including the work of several clever designers who hope we'll start taking our final outfits as seriously as we select what we don every day.
