Nativity Star Soapstone Sculpture
Our one of a kind hand carved Soap Stone goes on quite the journey before it reaches our hands.
This product is imported through Mojaone an international company dealing in quality African Arts & Crafts.

The carving of the soap stone is done by men, entirely by hand with machetes and simple knives. The men carve the structure of each unique item, preparing the stone for the sanding.
The mining of the soap stone is done by hand, using hammers, picks, and chisels. It is done by men in Kisii, Kenya, often times this craft has been passed down by generations within a family.
