Swahili Modern

ND223F_Set2

  • Each double sided candle holder is handcrafted from soapstone by artisans in Kenya's western highlands and Nairobi, then dyed to a soft gray and etched with decorative lines. This versatile piece can hold a taper candle or a tea light.

    Each measures 3"D x 3.5"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.
