  • Description

    Mill bobbin salvaged from a Lancashire mill with orange jute twine. This is a practical string dispenser but also an attractive ornament.
     
    Bobbin colours vary, but all are beautifully worn. A piece of British industrial history. 
     
    Bobbins are typically 15cm high. 
       
    Lancashire cotton mills used bobbins from the mechanisation of weaving and spinning in the mid 19th century. Many had coloured ends to distinguish between departments or the ply of the yarns that were to be wrapped round the bobbins. These coloured ends now have a wonderful worn patina. 
     
    Jute is a long, soft, shiny vegetable fibre that can be spun into coarse, strong threads often called hessian. It grows best in warm and humid climates. Almost 85% of the world's jute cultivation is concentrated in the Ganges delta shared by Bangladesh and India.

    Nutscene

    Environmentally friendly gifts for gardeners

    It all began in 1922 when the first spool of Nutscene was sold to a large local nursery by the jute merchants Robertson Ireland Ltd based in Dundee Scotland. A natural eco-friendly product which fast became the string of choice for gardeners throughout the UK. Hessian sacks soon followed, perfect for sack races.

    The name Nutscene is derived from the famous green twine which, when tied around the plant cannot be seen thus "Not Seen".

    Nutscene's product range today has been considerably expanded in partnership with a number of British craftsmen and women, thus supporting a large network of rural business throughout the UK. Products include oak plant labels and a natural pot brush.

    Nutscene strives to use raw materials harvested from renewable and sustainable sources. All the jute twines are biodegradable and all wooden products are manufactured from environmentally managed forests in the UK.
