Soapstone Kente Cloth Box

  • These solid soapstone boxes measures feature an intricate, hand-etched pattern inspired by traditional kente cloth from Ghana. Each box showcases the detailed craftsmanship of talented, Kenyan artisans.

    The boxes are carved from soapstone in Kenya's highlands, then dyed and etched by a cooperative of artisans in Nairobi. Measures 4"L x 2"W x 2"T.

  • 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.
