Circles of Devotion Soapstone Boxes

Swahili Modern

  • Ruby red with etched black circles signifies long-lasting love in these sweet heart-shaped storage boxes crafted from Kenyan soapstone. This is a beautiful expression of love that will delight your recipient.

    Each 100% soapstone box includes a matching lid and is a "sweet" storage solution for small items. Each box is hand-carved by Gusii artisans in western Kenya and hand-dyed and painted by Nairobi artists. Size: [S] 2.5" x 2.5" x 1.25" [L] 3.25" x 3.5" x 1.5".

  • At the Ndima Crafts' finishing shop in Nairobi’s industrial district, roughly a dozen artisans of varied ethnicity transform raw soapstone 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.
