My Carolina Collection
A Piece of History
The tobacco industry has been an integral part of North Carolina for centuries. Just a few decades ago, tobacco sticks were handcrafted by farmers. Bundles of tobacco leaves were tied to the sticks and hung to dry in tobacco barns.
Due to modern advances, drying techniques have changed, and tobacco sticks are no longer needed. They are becoming increasingly difficult to find, which makes items such as these flags and home decor both historically and decoratively valued.
