Ceramics and Soapstone

Natural Soapstone Deco Bookends


  • Kenyan artisans hand carve natural soapstone to craft these beautiful bookends that are polished to a smooth finish. Although colors are predominantly white, this is completely natural soapstone with NO dyeing so each piece could display a variation - with veining that can vary to gray and pink.  

    Measures: 10"L x 3"W x 6"T. Size may vary slightly. 

  • 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.
