Just a gimmick. It serves no purpose as the wearer will decompose anyway.

Over here all the cloths are to be of cotton so they rot with the corpse. In fact, the priest throws a piece of bread and pours some wine into the casket to get things started. The casket is then placed in a crypt for 3 years when, the priest opens it to see how things are going. If there's still some meat on the bone they wait another year or two. When all the flesh has been consumed the bones are gathered up, placed in a box and the box is either put back into the crypt or the priest takes them away to be burnt. (But, cremation is still illegal here! It's got something to do with the church not getting enough chances to bilk the begrieved out of their money)

"Made of an impregnable material." Too bad that wasn't defined. I'm curious about that.
