Wedding Bliss is here…

Makenge

This is the time of the year and Charleston is definitely a great place to get married!!  I’m sure many of you have upcoming weddings to attend, so you will need the perfect gift!  Why don’t you get something different than most people??  We have many gifts to choose from that will help the happy couple make their home very lovely! 

These makenge baskets have a wonderful story!  The tradition is the soon to be bride is given a makenge baskets from either her mother or in-laws and will be passed on to the next generation…  These baskets are one-of-a-kind and so durable they can be used for over 100 years!  They are made from the roots of the makenge bush and it takes 1 to 2 months to create just one!  These are great to hang on the wall or on a table!
