Blue Kuba Pattern Kisii Soapstone Tray

$34.00 $21.00
Availability : Ships regularly
Item SKU : 129448

Working with soft soapstone found in the Kisii District of Kenya, Gusii artisans hand carve decorative trays for use throughout the home. Artisans in a Nairobi workshop give the plain stone pieces character by hand dyeing the stone a rich blue and black, and adding incised details reminiscent of the patterns on Kuba cloth.

Because this is a handcrafted item, each may vary slightly.
