In celebration of the universal language of music, these hand-carved soapstone boxes feature a stained black exterior and hand-etched musical staffs and notes. A thoughtful gift for musicians or music enthusiasts.
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.
