Decorative Savannah Soapstone Boxes

  • This hand-carved box brings African safari to mind with its khaki coloration and animal prints.

    Each box is hand-dyed and etched, then hand-painted with a cheetah and zebra designs. The interior of the box retains the beige coloration of natural soapstone.

    Small measures 4"D x 2.75"T. Large measures 3"D x 2.5"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.
