Helping Hands Renovate Sweetgrass Basket Stands in Mt Pleasant

Sweetgrass Baskets are a hallmark of Lowcountry culture. The art form has been handed down through the generation since the 1700s and is one of the oldest West African handicrafts in the United States. Last weekend, members of T&H’s Charleston office volunteered with the Town of Mount Pleasant Culture, Arts & Pride Commission to restore several of the Sweetgrass Basket Stands along Highway 17, also known as the Gullah Geechee Heritage Corridor. Thank you to the Town staff for including us, it was a privilege to be involved! Click here for a news story on the important work being done to preserve these culturally rich landmarks.
