Giraffe Friends Soapstone Box

  • Hand-carved from raw soapstone in the Tabaka Hills of Kenya, this sweet African box depicts two baby giraffe friends.

    Each box is hand-dyed and etched, and features detailing on the box's bottom rim. The interior of the box retains the beige coloration of natural soapstone.

    Small measures 2"L x 1.5"W x 1.25"T. Medium measures 3"L x 2"W x 1.5"T. Large measures 4"L x 3"W x 2"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.
