Sussex trug

The time honoured trug of old English design.  They are an indispensable tool for any gardener as well as being a strong, lightweight carry-all. Great as a picnic basket, display bowl for fruit and veges, doll’s crib or knitting basket.

The rim and handle is formed from barked Hazel or willow and the slats from aspen poplar steamed and bent to create a clinker built boat shape. Despite their light weight (approx. 700g or 1.8 lb) they are extremely strong and durable. Trugs are not treated or varnished and will develop a beautiful patina over time.

Dimensions: 28cm high 30cm wide 50cm long

$135 + P&P
