Home > Our Story > About Us


We tapped into decades of wisdom and reinvented the funeral urn based on what is essential to our family and your family’s needs today.

Urban RIP is a Canadian design company, based in Toronto. We are a family-owned company, founded based on our family’s need to find an urn that felt organic within our home, after our family experienced the loss of a beautiful baby boy named Athan. We wanted to keep his memory in plain sight, yet private at the same time.

Our products are designed to look discreet within your home so that only you know what beloved treasure lies within. All of our “Ash Sharing” urns are created to have the option to divide cremated ashes amount family and close friends. Theyre designed to be interchangeable, modular, and stackable. All UrbanRIP products can be personalized, and they are handcrafted out of solid bars of U.S. stainless steel.

“Because creating something beautiful and meaningful
for your family is not only important to us,
it’s an honour.”

“I made a promise to disrupt the funeral market. After completing three years of thorough l research on the world’s oldest industry, that promise became a vision to make a change. A chance to offer a solution and redirect our resistance and others' discomfort, to gently shift views of the stigma on death and to integrate funeral products within our home decor.”
