African Soapstone Etched Hearts

Swahili Modern


  • These solid soapstone hearts are hand-carved in the western hills of Kenya, then dyed and etched by artisans in Nairobi.

    The hearts come in the colors shown and are decorated with finely etched lines. Each heart measures 2"L x 2"W x 1.25"T and feels "chubby" when held in the hand.

    Makes a great gift or wedding favor!

  • Bosma's father once owned a thriving workshop in downtown Nairobi, and he taught Bosma the crafts of woodworking and carving soapstone. Following in his footsteps, Bosma and his sister Pamela continue to produce artworks of various mediums and also help other Kenyan craftspeople to export their works.
