Our LOVE heart series spells out your feelings against a beautiful red background. "Love" and whimsical spirals are incised by hand around a heart-shaped soapstone box dyed deep red.
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.
