The unique artwork for our products is inspired from those beautiful Southern Palmetto trees that have withstood hurricane force winds for decades and even British cannonballs from more than a lifetime ago. The palmetto represents strength with its tightly woven fibers, while at the same time serving as an icon of the southern coastal plain.
Our specialized products feature the artwork of Cal Harrelson—artist and creator of the Calmetto. Through Calmettos USA, these products provide a tangible way for those who appreciate palmetto tree artwork to enjoy it on our attractive merchandise. Future Calmettos USA merchandise will feature never-before-seen artwork through new product introductions.
Perfect for Home and Office Décor, Wall Art, Gifts and Interior Design projects.
Calhoun Harrelson, known as Cal, paints palmettos, thus, “calmettos”. A native South Carolinian, Cal has experienced all things Coastal South Carolina from hunting and hiking, to fishing, boating, planting southern pines, seining for shrimp, gathering crabs and oysters for a roast and simply enjoying a love of the land. Cal’s roots run deep in South Carolina as his Great Uncle John C. Calhoun was South Carolina’s greatest Statesman.
