Soapstone Pencil Box


Sold Out

Our elegant Soapstone Pencil Box is entirely hand-carved from a type of soapstone known as Kisii Stone.  Master carvers in Kenya's western highlands craft the basic form for a lidded pencil box from the soft soapstone. Artisans in a Nairobi workshop then add a cheerful orange dyed finish and hand etched detailing.

Under the leadership of Charles Ndibe's exacting standards of quality, roughly a dozen Fair Trade artisans of varied ethnicity transform raw soapstone into works of art. 

Because each Fair Trade Soapstone Pencil Box is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly.

Origin: Kenya

Materials: Soapstone, non-toxic dye
