  • The basic form for these dramatic boxes are crafted in Kenya's western highlands from soft soapstone. Artisans in a Nairobi workshop then add the black dyed finish and etched line details.

    Size: [Medium] 3"D x 1.5"T. 

  • 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.
