Sponsored Links What's This?
    This Lamu Lovers heart dish is perfect for storing small personal belongings such as loose change or precious stones. Handmade from the famous soft kisii soapstone of Kenya, this Lamu Lovers heart dish is carved by the Gusii people and hand-painted by rural artisans in Nairobi.

    Product Features:
    • Color: Lime
    • Materials: Soapstone, synthetic dyes
    • Dimensions: 5 inches long x 5.75 inches wide x 1 inch deep

    • Story Behind the Art:
      The Abagusii, or Gusii, are the predominant residents of the Kisii District, which is one of Kenya's most populated regions. The Gusii are recognized widely for their skill at carving soapstone, and several families in the region earn supplemental income from the sale of their stone art. The Gusii dye and finish some of their carved art for local sale, and offer the rest for sale to craft producers throughout Kenya. At the Ndima finishing shop near Nairobi, roughly a dozen artisans of varied ethnicity bring the stone carvings to life using non-toxic synthetic dyes. Etched details are often added for contrast and definition, as well as tooled brass, bone, leather and beads. Swahili Imports works together with Ndima artisans every six months to create new designs.
