This gorgeous artisan Devon Maund is lovingly hand-crafted in Golden Bay by The Trug Maker, and is an example of the trug making craft in one of its finest forms. 

The Devon Maund, or Splint Basket as they are sometimes known, was originally used as a basket for gathering and storing produce such as potatoes and onions which were then stored in a cellar or cool place until needed. Fill with kindling and sit by the fireplace, or simply display at home - it's a stunning interior decor piece and a beautiful gift for someone special.

Made of wooden (aspen) slats which are shaped and shaved with traditional hand tools; the froe and drawknife. The pieces are then steamed and attached with copper nails to the previously steamed and moulded rim and handle. The base of the basket is bound with a strip of copper and the top features an oval willow rim and handle. It's strong and sturdy without being too heavy.

A little about The Trug Maker

Based in stunning corner of the South Island, Tony the Trug Maker, spends hours carefully and diligently perfecting the ancient craft of trug making, creating baskets which are unique treasures. With their simplicity and timeless design they can enhance any house or garden setting. They are visually ornamental and practically useful. The trugs, flower baskets and maunds are light weight yet rugged enough to withstand decades of garden use.

The work of trug making has a peaceful simplicity about it and in today’s world of virtual reality and mass production, the baskets are grounded in their making by traditional construction, simple woodworking tools and the individuality of a handmade treasure.
