This decorative tray is handcrafted by Kenyan artisans from soft soapstone which has a hand-dyed finish with a simple message: "love is love." Hearts and a bold black rim complete the dishes. Makes a thoughtful gift for young and old.
Measures 10"L x 3"W x 0.5"T. Because this box is carved from natural soapstone, variations in coloration should be expected.
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.
