Zebra & Giraffe Handmade Soapstone Boxes

  • These bright African boxes are hand-carved from natural soapstone in the Tabaka Hills of Western Kenya, then etched and dyed by artists in Nairobi.

    Each 3"x4" box features a friendly giraffe and zebra, along with detailing on the box's edge. 

    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.
