Please note: This product is an artisan, handcrafted item lovingly created to order. Please allow 1-2 weeks from time of placing order for delivery.

This gorgeous traditional trug 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. 

This classically beautiful basket is extremely light - approximately 700g - but extremely strong. Trugs are not oiled or varnished or the wood treated in any way. Over time they gain a beautiful patina which adds to their charm. Keep your trug inside and dry although it does not matter if it gets wet during use. Simply wash or wipe out if it gets dirty.

The trugs are made of a willow rim and handle and the boards which are steamed and bent into the clinker built boat shape, are aspen which is a type of poplar. 

A trug is a traditional gardening tool but it has many other uses. It can hold knitting, magazines, be a dolls bed or place for the cat to nap. As a vessel for arranging flowers and fruit it is superb. For a casual picnic it easily holds bread and wine, grapes and cheeses.

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.
