Coffins vs Caskets

So what is the difference between a coffin and a casket?

Technically, both a coffin and a casket has the same purpose—it is used as a container of the remains of a dead person. This sounds brutal the first time you read it, but that is the fact. The difference is mainly in the design and the level of detail that goes into each. A coffin is generally plain in design whilst a casket is more complex, leaning more on detailed and masterful craftsmanship.
