what is sweetgrass?

sweetgrass is a fragrant grass with long, satiny leaves, used widely in africa & north america for basket weaving and herbal medicine.

the abundance of raw sweetgrass in rwanda has made it an integral element of the long-practiced craft of basket-weaving and an important part of the country’s culture.
