Handmade Sweetgrass Basket
The coiled sweetgrass basket is an example of African heritage that was transported across the Atlantic by African slaves from the Windward or Rice Coast of Africa. The baskets, one of the oldest African crafts in America, began appearing in South Carolina during the late 17th century. The first baskets known in the Lowcountry (SC) were fanner baskets used for winnowing rice. The use of the baskets expanded to the planting and harvesting of cotton and other money crops. The agricultural baskets were made of bulrush, sweetgrass and split oak.
The basket making craft has been handed down from generation to generation and is usually learned during childhood. There are no set patterns so each piece is a unique work of art
