About Soapstone

Our soapstone items are sourced and hand-carved in Kisii, Kenya

Soapstone is a natural, nonporous stone. The off-white colour is its natural colour, but its colour varies naturally, so no 2 pieces are exactly the same. The colour may darken slightly with age.

Soapstone is breakable, and scratches easily. Scratches also repair easily - rub them with some oil or wax, and sand lightly with sandpaper or steel wool.
