Handmade in the Sussex weald, authentic and faithful to the old tradition, from sweet chestnut and willow. Maker Charlie Groves is one of the very few skilled craftsmen producing these wonderful rural baskets in exactly the same way they have been made for almost 200 years.
This small, round trug is one of the tricker shapes to make. Measuring 20cm (just under 8″) diameter, it is an ideal size for children, or for gathering smaller fruit and vegetables, such as berries and beans. It is also a wonderful kitchen storage basket, for eggs, garlic, shallots and all sorts.
