Welcome to the Thomas Smith website. Here you will find
out all about our products, how they are made and their rich history. We
hope that you enjoy your visit and will tell your family and friends about
us. If you wish to see our Trugs being made then you can visit our workshops
here in Herstmonceux or you can see us at one of the shows we attend in
Britain and the rest of Europe.
The European Parliament has passed legislation in principle to protect non-agricultural products and the Sussex Trug will be included in the final legislation when passed. MEP Catherine Bearder has been working on behalf of the few remaining Sussex Trug Makers over the past year or so to achieve a measure of protection for our most famous of Sussex Crafts. It will stop unscrupulous traders from using the words "Sussex trug" when describing their imported knock-offs produced in China!
Please don't go to Berwick!
We left there in February 2014 and have requested Google to remove the marker.
