In centuries past island natives learned to weave palm tree fronds for
many practical purposes, creating special designs for thatched huts, as
well as unusual fishing pots to capture food from shallow lagoons.
Through countless generations this custom has remained unchanged, and
the traditional fish pot design has become the hallmark of quality for
St. Johns fragrances.
This art is perpetuated by families in St. Barts in the French
West Indies where most of the palm castings are made. Others, totaling
thousands a month, are made in St. Thomas, Tortola in the British
Virgin Islands, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
Deftly and rapidly, busy hands form narrow strips of Tyre palm fronds
(collected in the hills surrounding Hull Bay on St. Thomas). They are
dried in the sun, then shaped into small baskets and slipped over
bottles in a glove like fit. It takes over 30 minutes to hand weave
