Who doesn't love elephants?! These bowls are made from the best soapstone in Kenya. Each bowl is smooth polished and features black and white etched designs with elephants in the middle. Not safe for food or liquids.
IMPACT: stone carvers' incomes brought a computer lab and a library to the village of Tabaka in Kenya. Soapstone is mined from great pits in the area surrounding Kiisi, Kenya. The mined soapstone is then delivered to carvers who carve sculptures from the natural stone. Once carved, the craftspeople smooth rough edges of the soapstone with sandpaper dipped in water and polish the piece to a high gloss. With every product you purchase, you are helping these artisans have employment, educational opportunities and medical care.
