  • Hand carved from soapstone by artisans in Kenya's Kisii Highlands, this set of beautifully dyed aqua tropical sea inhabitants brighten a shelf or table with its vividly dyed coloration.

    Includes one whale measuring 4"L x 2"W x 3.25"T and one tropical fish measuring 4"L x 1.5"W x 3"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.
