REVIVING THE ART OF MOURNING KEEPSAKES

A collection of handcrafted mourning keepsakes & sympathy gifts.

REVIVING THE ART OF MOURNING KEEPSAKES

The 8th House Collection would like to present a means to a more open conversation on death & dying. Our collection of handcrafted mourning keepsakes & sympathy gifts challenge today’s silence around this uncomfortable subject. Through embracing the tradition of sentimental keepsakes and the ancient practice of the Memento Mori, we aim to create beautiful pieces of art that not only honor the memory of loved ones, but also remind us that “we too shall die” and return to a greater entity. Be it the earth, the cosmos or an afterlife, our unique ability to contemplate our impending mortality is what connects all of humanity.
