This 100% silk fabric consists of five pieces of 100% Dupioni Silk. Dupioni silk has a beautiful luster and texture. This silk fabric with it's subtle sheen and varying off white color is not a flaw in the fabric but rather an attribute from the silk thread that is produced by the silk worm.

- What if we need the burial shroud right away?
In many cases the burial shroud can be shipped same day air. Expedited delivery is quite expensive, so we encourage pre-planning. The order for same day air must arrive by 9:00am central time and you must call to confirm your order. Although we attempt to fill are orders and most carriers are reliable, we cannot guarantee shipment due to unforeseen circumstances, inclement weather, etc. Next day air is available through FedEx if the burial shroud must arrive on Saturday. UPS does not deliver on weekends. Please call to place your order if you need weekend delivery or next day air.
- Why is the shroud so expensive?
We use dupioni silk from India whose silk is well known for its beauty and high quality. Most retail fabric is 45"wide and is not wide enough for some shrouding situations. We purchase 54 inch wide silk fabric. The edges of each of the five pieces of silk are beautifully sewn to prevent fraying for a finished shroud.
- I have never used a shroud before, how do I use the fabric?
Within the packaged five piece shroud is a small pamphlet that briefly describes four methods that can be used to shroud a body. Additionally, when you purchase the shroud you may download a complimentary, detailed description of several ways in which you can use the fabric, (photographs included).
- Where are the ForloraShrouds manufactured?
All of our ForloraShrouds are manufactured locally in the United States. The seams of the ForloraShroud are meticulously sewn. The five pieces of fabric are separate pieces to provide various shrouding options based upon each unique situation.
