The form for these tealight candle holders are crafted in Kenya's western highlands from soft soapstone. Artisans in a Nairobi workshop then add the black dyed finish and etched bamboo branch details.
Size: each candle holder measures 4" wide x 1" tall. Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, slight variation may occur. Sold as a pair. Candle not included.
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.
