Often used as a catch-all for toys or school supplies, this handcrafted dish measures 5"x5" and features two hand-painted turtles.
The dishes are carved from natural soapstone in rural Kenya, then dyed and hand-etched by artists in Nairobi.
Due to the nature of non-toxic dyes, we do not recommend exposing the dish 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.
