i was surprised to read today in the newsgroups an article the services picked up regarding the gullah and their folk art if you call their basket weaving folk art, i do, and i don't mean to be insulting...
seagrass is woven into these decorative (these days) mostly covered baskets by persons who are generally taught the craft by their elders. the baskets originated as rice baskets produced for functionality, and practicality by the enslaved early in south carolina's history - those persons enslaved to harvest the rice grown in the coastal marshy areas.
