This is Extra Large Farmhouse Trug Basket #1886 which was handmade on October 6, 2022. This basket features a lovely combination of solid and print fabrics inspired by Fall and Halloween in shades of orange, red, brown, green, black, and white. It is stitched together in a combination of scarlet, tangerine, and honey colored zigzag stitching.

This basket is approximately 9 inches high. The top opening of this basket measures 9.5 inches wide by 14.5 inches long. The base is an oval measuring roughly 8 by 12 inches. This particular basket features long handles to be carried over the shoulder, elbow, wrist, or in hand. 

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. 

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!
