For more than 300 years; people in Charleston have been weaving baskets using locally-harvested bulrush; a strong yet supple marshgrass that thrives in the sandy soil of Lowcountry. Originally used as winnowing fans to separate the rice seed from its chaff; sweetgrass baskets are regarded among the nation's most prized cultural souvenirs.
