Sweetgrass Basket Pin
Sweetgrass baskets sold today in and around Charleston are a modern expression of the basketry knowledge brought to the Lowcountry by enslaved Africans. This artisan craft has been practiced locally for centuries and is recognized nationally as an important form of folk art. This basket pin is made by local basket sewers and is a wonderful way to always have a bit of Charleston with you.
