Soapstone Carvings

Soapstone carvings are hand made in Kenya. They are called Kisii stone, named after the Kisii tribe of Tabaka Hills in Western Kenya who use them for domestic use and more recently for Hand made carvings for export due to their excellent craftsmanship. Soapstone is found in the Kisii district of Kenya. 

The carvers used to make mostly wild animal figurines, but more recently have started creating contemporary abstracts, candle holders, bookends, domestic pet figurines like cats and dogs to name a few.  

The soapstone is first immersed into water so that it is easier to mold and carve. Once the stone is dry it will stay in its solid form. Color is used to give a brighter look and is added on to some of the carvings. The cool soft touch of Kisii is unparalleled to any other stone in the world.

Touch a Kisii soapstone and experience the purity and innocence of an exotic continent.  
 
Please note that as each item is hand carved, occasionally there might be slight variations in color or pattern from the items pictured.
