|Production Method||The BURLIN is a unique harvesting basket handcrafted on our small farm in Western, North Carolina. We use old tobacco sticks for the handles. These sticks were used by the first settler in our area to spear their tobacco on then hung in the barn to dry. Tobacco growing is a thing of the past here now. The sticks once a useful tool are now left in so many of the barns that are falling down. The sticks are usually about four feet long, they are picked through using the strongest ones for the handles. Each handle has a rustic characteristic naturally fashion into the wood. Only food grade mineral oil is used to help preserve the baskets, allowing the natural beauty and maintaining the integrity of the wood|
