Natural Sweetgrass and Ash Handkerchief Basket
Many Wabenaki fancy baskets were designed around the turn of the 20th century to be sold in Maine’s coastal resort communities. You can imagine the ladies buying a basket such as this one in which to store their handkerchiefs. With any luck, the handkerchief would pick up some of the sweet aroma from the grass!
This handkerchief basket retains the natural color of the ash wood as well as the sweetgrass. No dyes were used
