A meaningful gift for Christmas, these solid soapstone crosses are hand-carved in Kenya. The cross is polished, dyed, and hand-etched small dots for contrast.
The cross can be hung with the included ribbon as a beautiful reminder to meditate or pray. Measures 5"T x 3"W. Fair trade.
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.
