Hand Carved Soapstone Cat Trinket / Dish Made in Kenya
After mining the stone, each item is hand carved from one piece of soapstone with a machete then wet-sanded smooth by the artists of Vaneal Self-Help Group in Kenya. Once the carving is finished, the item is dyed and etched with the finishing accent patterns. By purchasing this piece, you are partnering with these artisans in Kenya to create employment opportunities.
Each stone has a different color pattern, grain, and design. Therefore, no two natural soapstone products are the same.
Size: ~3" x 2.5"
This item is intended for decorative use. While it is food-safe, getting it wet could damage the dye. This item would be ideal for holding change, jewelry or other small nick-knacks.
