Mother & Child Giraffe Box

  • A touching example of African artistry, this large keepsake box is hand-carved from solid soapstone in Kenya. Artists etch and hand-paint each box using natural dyes.

    A giraffe print design decorates the box's sides while the interior of the box retains the natural coloration of soapstone.

    Measures 6"L x 3.5"W x 2"T.

  • At the Ndima Crafts' finishing shop in Nairobi’s industrial district, roughly a dozen artisans of varied ethnicity bring raw soapstone to life by using non-toxic synthetic dyes under the leadership of Charles Ndibe. Charle's exacting standards of quality and friendly demeanor make him one of Swahili Modern's most reliable vendors.
