1721 Creations is owned and operated by Jerame Smalls, a native of Charleston, SC. He currently resides in Charlotte, NC. Please feel free to email our owner at 1721Creations@gmail.com for any additional questions or concerns.
Jerame created his company's name by using the address where his grandmother resided in Charleston. 1721 was the birthplace for Jerame and his Charleston Sweetgrass Baskets.
Jerame has been handcrafting these beautiful Charleston Sweetgrass Baskets for over 17 years. He learned the craft from his grandmother, the late Mary Alice Venning-Vanderhorst (1940-2010), at the age of 12 years old.
The art of basket weaving has been passed down from generation to generation throughout the Venning legacy, and will continue to touch individuals across the world with 1721 Creations.
