Our History and Roots – Nutscene ®

Nutscene ® has been involved in the manufacturing and processing of jute twines and ancillary products for the gardener since 1922. The company patented the first “pull from centre spool” of garden twine, which has been copied by many but never equalled. Our name is derived from our world renowned green garden twine which, when tied around the plant cannot be seen, thus “Not Seen” – ‘Nutscene‘.

From our origins within the jute industry in Dundee, Scotland – the home of “Jute, Jam and Journalism”, our ‘Heritage Range’ was conceived and developed. Utilising natural materials , the range reintroduced jute as an on-trend and eco-friendly material. This company has been in partnership with a number of British artisans , thus supporting a network of rural business throughout the UK.

Here at Nutscene, we take pride in the fact that we still manufacture our own twines using traditional methods and the original machinery.
