Charleston, South Carolina, home of Folbot, is known for its incredible beauty. Whether it is the natural or built environment, Charleston is a special place. (In a recent Travel & Leisure survey, Charleston was the 4th most popular travel destination in North America!).
Some of the most beautiful signature items in Charleston are the sweetgrass baskets made by the “flower ladies.”
These baskets are true works of art — many are in collections in museums around the world. The skill to craft these incredible creations has been handed down from artisan to artisan for hundreds of years.
Miss Ruth Wright, a true sweetgrass basket making artist, is a dear friend of our family. If you visit her at her prime location at the Four Corners of Law in downtown Charleston, check out what you might see.
