Sweetgrass Basket

Mount Pleasant native Marilyn W. Dingle headweaves her fruit and flower basket using sweetgrass, bulrush, palmetto palms, and pine needles. 843-884-5590; $560 (baskets are available in a range of prices)

Lowcountry basket makers use a filed-down spoon handle, called a “nailbone,”
to pierce the sweetgrass coil, making way for the palmetto binder.
