Handcrafted in the sweetgrass basket sewing tradition of the South Carolina Gullah community, this item is made from locally harvested materials (sweetgrass, palmetto, and pine needles) using a technique utilized by slaves and their descendants along the Southeast coast for centuries.

Item Details: 6.5” H x 12.75” W x 3.25” D; mouth of basket is 10” W

Care Instructions:
Preserve your basket for generations to come by using a soft, damp cloth to remove dust and debris. If placing objects inside I recommend the use of a liner (linen, napkin, light towel, etc) to prolong the life of your basket. These baskets are strong and woven tightly with locally dried grass and materials, and are best preserved when kept in dry areas to prevent damage. Washing or leaving it in areas where it can easily get wet is NOT recommended.

Leaving the basket in the sun may cause them to change color over time, often darkening in color, but I believe this only adds to the beauty of it.

Please allow 5-7 business days from the date of order placement for packaging and preparation of this item to be shipped to its new home. I only ship to individuals within the continental United States at this time.
