Handsome, sturdy and useful, Gullah sweet grass baskets are a unique American craft, one that has survived in an age when so many household furnishings and decorative objects are products of Asian factories. (The Gullah people are African-Americans living on the coast of South Carolina and the nearby barrier islands who developed a distinctive Creole language.) Like many great handicrafts, these baskets tell a fascinating story, as well as offering a high level of artistry and design. They are the very best souvenir you can bring home from a trip to Charleston.
