Sweet grass is also known as holy grass, vanilla grass or Seneca grass.
It is hand gathered by Native Americans in various parts of North America.
The grass is combed, sorted and dried in small bundles.
This grass has been used in traditional Native American basketry as well as for ceremonial purposes where the grass is bundled with sage and cedar leaves.
The grass releases a natural oil as it dries that gives off a sweet vanilla/tobacco-like fragrance that will remain indefinitely in each sculptural basket.
