The Story Behind It

Kisii Soapstone at a Glance

Kisii Soapstone Kisii Soapstone Kisii Soapstone

For the Kisii people of Eastern Africa, mining and carving soapstone is an ancient and tribal affair. Found exclusively in the Tabaka Hills of Western Kenya, Kisii soapstone is mined from the quarries by hand. The raw soapstone is carried back to village shops, broken into smaller pieces and carved using a small knife called a kisu.

Skilled Kisii artisans quickly and efficiently handcraft the soft, malleable soapstone into beautiful figurative art and home decor including bowls, plates, candleholders, jewelry boxes and more. Our impressive selection of exclusive, high quality Kisii soapstone pieces are guaranteed to add exotic good looks to your home.
