  • This playful set of bookends, carved from African soapstone, is polished, dyed, and etched with polka dot indentations.

    Designed with the modern home in mind, these unique bookends are one of our best sellers for both children and adults.

    Measures 6.5"H x 3.5"L, per side. Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, slight variation may occur. Fair trade from Kenya.

  • 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.
