The Truggery

Makers of Traditional Sussex Trugs since 1899

Traditional Sussex Trug Baskets

Our workshop and shop are located on the edge of the village of Herstmonceux in East Sussex.  It has always been a family run business since its founder, Reuben Reed came here in 1899.  He was succeeded by two further generations.  Everyone who has lived in this house has been involved in the manufacture or sale of trugs.
