Maker's Quote

The origins of the trug goes back to Anglo Saxon times, when it was a wooden vessel carved out of solid wood. The word ‘trug’ derives from the Anglo Saxon word ‘trog’, which means boat-shaped – and it’s very likely that the original trugs were coracle-shaped, round boats used to navigate waterways.
