English Garden Trug

Cuckmere Trug Company




Though the original Sussex trug was invented in the 1820’s, craftsmanship-wise, not much has changed—each basket is hand-built by skilled craftsmen from sturdy chestnut wood for the rim and handle, and willow wood for the boards. While its intended purpose is to serve as a gardening aid, its functionality is virtually endless: use it as a picnic basket, for fresh produce storage, or as part of a rustic centerpiece. 

  • Handle/Rim: Sweet chestnut wood; Board: Cricket Bat Willow wood 
  • Apply wood preserver or oils as necessary 
  • Made in Great Britain
  • Measurements:
  • Length: 20"
  • Width (without handle): 10.5" / Width (with handle): 11.25"
  • Depth: 4.25"
  • Height (without handle): 5.75" / Height (with handle): 11"

      About the brand

      With a history that dates all the way back to the 1820s and a clientele that included Queen Victoria herself, Cuckmere Trug is the epitome of a British heritage brand. In an urban environment, the handcrafted trugs make for excellent picnic baskets, and thanks to the built-in feet, can double as rustic centerpieces, though their intended function is for farm-to-table gathering (flowers, vegetables, mushrooms, etc.) and gardening. Starting with the hand-bent handles and ending with the copper tacking, everything about these handcrafted pieces is a testament to the handiwork of skilled craftsmen.
