Kenyan Carved Soapstone Elephant Box

Sold Out

  • These handcrafted African boxes measures 3"x3" and are great for storing small toys or crafts in a child's room.

    The boxes are carved from natural soapstone in rural Kenya, then dyed and hand-etched by artists in Nairobi. Each fair trade box includes a fitted lid and playful animal design.

    Due to the nature of non-toxic dyes, we do not recommend exposing the boxes to water.

  • 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.
