These beautiful carved sculptures are handmade in Kenya. Soapstone sculptures have been carved in Kisii in Kenya for over 60 years. Kisii stone is soft and varies in colour from white to rose and even grey. Carvers work in small groups with each group specialising in certain carvings. The carvings are then polished and dyed in vibrant colours and beautiful etchings inscribed in them by skilled teams of artisans.
We stock a range of items from small message hearts to larger family groups.
