Set/2 Love is Love Soapstone Heart Boxes

Swahili Modern

KCC21C_Set2

  • Handcrafted by Kenyan artisans from soft soapstone, this set of 2 heart-shaped keepsake boxes have a hand-dyed finish with a simple message: "love is love." Hearts complete the boxes. Makes a thoughtful gift for young and old to share.

    Measures 2.75"L x 2.75"W x 1.25"T.  Because this box is carved from natural soapstone, variations in coloration should be expected.

  • 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.
