Customized Coffins

The pieces shown here are custom made coffins from Teshie, Ghana, where the craft of is part of the local history. Seth Kane Kwei, a carpenter born in 1922, became known for his elaborate custom caskets. Kwei himself learned the craft from carpenter Ata Owoo who fashioned specially made coffins for tribal chiefs. 

Today, Seth Kane Kwei has now passed on, but the workshop named after him and run by his ancestors is a successful business. The company, called Kane Kwei Company Workshop, makes wood coffins according to the occupations, hobbies, interests or loves of the deceased.
