Our Fair Trade Soapstone Products are completely handmade. They are made by a team of skilled craftspeople in Tabaka, Kisii County, in south western Kenya. By purchasing these products, you help create a sustainable income for many families who are very proud to make these beautiful products.
The products are natural, zero plastic, and handmade using simple masonry tools. Handmade Soapstone products have less than 1% environmental impact from production and disposal compared to non-recyclable plastic or resin products.
Carvers work in small groups with each group specialising in certain carvings, carved shapes are then sanded and coloured with a natural dye before a skilled team of craftspeople etch the patterns revealing the natural colour of the soapstone. Finally, the products are polished with a natural wax.
