Totem Of Life And Death.
The innovative way of scattering ashes.
More and more people are attracted to the idea of returning their loved ones to nature. It's a special way to complete the circle of life. With this in mind, we present TOLAD, a walking stick you fill with the ashes of the deceased.
After choosing a meaningful location for you and the deceased, you can press down up to 400 times as you walk along with family and friends, while a small amount of ash is released along the path, respectfully leaving a trace of the deceased with each step. By passing the TOLAD around, all present can share old memories and make new ones as they participate in this final ceremonial walk. As you continue along, the TOLAD will lighten as a final symbolic farewell.

“I felt a strong desire to return the ashes of both ancestors to the earth at a symbolic place. The area where we walked with the TOLAD was in the dunes, where my father proposed to my mother.”
