We're decking the halls of the farmhouse with this lovely jute garland this year. It is filled with the farmhouse style we love and is perfectly suited on a holiday tree, mantel, wreath, or wrapped around a big present for an extra bit of texture and color.
This burlap jute measures 3.5 inches wide and is heavy enough to hold a fold when placed on your tree yet pliable enough to be shaped into bows for a wreath, wrapped around a tree's trunk, or run the length of your holiday table. We're offering this pretty garland in finished and unfinished lengths. Choose the unfinished length if you are planning to cut the garland or use it in a manner that does not require a finished edge. Choose the finished length if you would like for us to turn under the cut ends and stitch them down to prevent raveling and give it a finished edge so that you can use them year after year.
We're making these garland in 6', 12', and 18' lengths to fit a variety of uses. However, we'd be happy to create a custom length for you in the finished or unfinished version. Just send us a message and we'll work with you.
All of our coiled fabric baskets are made by hand at 1840 Farm. Each fabric strip is torn by hand before being combined with other complimentary fabrics and then wrapped around a length of cording, joining the fabrics as we go. The fabric wrapped cord is then coiled and stitched together using a zigzag stitch on my sewing machine. I continue to wrap the coil and shape the basket as it is stitched, ending each one in our trademark spiral design.
We blend new fabrics with select repurposed fabrics to create a pleasing color palette for each item. Each piece has its own unique color pattern and slight variation in shape. Because every piece is handmade, each one is a true original. Our handmade baskets display the raw edge of the fabrics used to create it. They are handmade in our non-smoking farmhouse.
I make our fabric items using the same technique my Great Grandmother used over 50 years ago. She lovingly transformed worn out clothing into useful household items that were used in their New England farmhouse. While her items were made purely for utility purposes, it is my goal to create beautiful handmade items that can serve a useful purpose in your home.
Our fabric baskets can be cleaned by spot washing or in the gentle cycle of your washing machine. Gently reshape the basket while still damp and allow to air dry. Overturning the damp basket on top of a bowl will ensure that it retains its shape while drying.
This listing is for the basket only. Other items shown in the photographs are not included in the sale price. Those items were used for photographic purposes only. Their use was intended to show the utility and various uses of the basket.
We also make custom pieces to order. Contact us if you have questions or would like to place a custom order. We would love to work together to make a beautiful piece just for you. We hope to be sending something special from our farmhouse to your house soon!
