Natural Nativity Soapstone Sets

Swahili Modern


  • This soapstone nativity set is created by Kenyan artisans by carving a natural creamy white soft African soapstone. Available in two sizes, they include 12 figures.

    Small: Figures range up to 4" tall; Large: Figures range up to 6" tall.

  • 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.
