Handcrafted Sweetgrass Basket

20. Handcrafted Sweetgrass Basket

Sweetgrass baskets are a time honored tradition and represent a long and rich cultural history. Nearly 400 years ago, Lowcountry slaves brought with them their craft of weaving baskets from local grasses. They were originally used for collecting rice and cotton in plantation fields and other practical purposes. Since then, the skill has been passed down through the generations. Today, the craft has become a highly respected and distinctive art form. With meticulous skill, these works of art can take anywhere from a few hours to months or longer to complete. They can be used for storage, display art or even to refresh the air and are perfect for any home.
