french blonde willow trug


this product is currently out of stock, please contact us and we will notify you once the stock becomes available.

A truly beautiful piece, the blonde willow trug is made entirely by hand by an artisan weaver in a small village in the Dordogne region of France. A wonderful addition to any home or garden.

Each trug starts life as a hoop made on a jig, once dry the hoop is fitted with central ribs of split willow. Whole willow rods are then geometrically braided around the frame and more ribs are added. In preparation of this stage, the rods, which are grown and hand harvested by the weaver, are soaked for a month to ensure they can be woven without splitting. Once finished the trug is braced for several days of drying.

Dimensions: 51cm x 35cm x 12cm. Handle height 23cm.
