Inspirations from Nature
Tell us about your business.The BURLIN basket named after my deceased father are made from the old tobacco sticks that once hung tobacco leaves to dry in the "Burlin" family barn. So many of the barns are falling down. I wanted to preserve a part of the bygone era in our baskets. The baskets have many uses and will serve as a family hand-me-down. Each basket is truly unique with some history crafted into each one. Easily hose off harvested items prior to bringing them indoors. I want all gardeners to soon be saying, "Bring me the BURLIN and let's go to the garden!"
What makes your business stand out?Each basket is one of a kind. Proudly MADE in the USA. Made to last a lifetime with minimal care. Crafted on a small farm in beautiful Western NC.
