Nakia Wigfall's family has been hand-crafting sweetgrass baskets for over 300 years. As a 5th Generational basket maker, Nakia uses the art of weaving as a way to to teach the history and ancestry of West African slaves. We're in awe by the stories she tells, using the art as a form of living history. In a city as diverse as Charleston, preserving the past is as important as holding steadfast for the future.
