History of the Gullah Weavers:
Over the last 10 generations, the Gullah weavers have carried on the craft traditions that were native to their African homelands to create baskets featuring exquisite patterns and intricate weaves, preserving traditional styles such as those once used to winnow rice. They use a combination of locally harvested sweetgrass, pine needles, bulrush, and palmetto to weave their unique pieces. Each weaver prides themselves on being intuitive weavers, each having their own unique and signature weaving styles, meaning no two baskets are ever alike. Their craft tradition is embedded into the cultural and physical landscape of this community which continues to reside in the Lowcountry of South Carolina and the nearby barrier islands.
Handcrafted in the sweetgrass basket weaving tradition of the Gullah community in South Carolina, this hand-woven basket, is made from locally harvested
Preserve your basket for generations to come by using soft, damp cloth to remove dust and debris. It is recommended to use a liner for the baskets when placing objects inside, such as a linen, napkin, or light towel. The baskets are strong and woven tightly with locally dried grass and materials, and are best preserved when kept in dry areas to prevent damage. It is not recommended to wash your basket or leave in areas where it can easily get wet.
Leaving the basket in the sun may cause them to change color over time, often darkening in color, but we believe this only adds to the beauty of the basket over time!
