Hand-Etched Soapstone Box

  • These desktop boxes are hand-carved from raw soapstone and include beautifully shaped lid. Each box features dozens of hand-etched dots in a sunburst design.

  • 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.
