Story Behind the 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, and finishes are inspired by local themes like safari animals and African textiles, or from universally-recognized elements like spirals, flowers, stars and hearts.

  • Zebra dish is a unique piece.

    This dish was a gift for a friend who is a naturalist. She loved this unique dish and has it on display at her home, but also uses it for entertaining. As mentioned before, I am concerned about washing as there were warning on the site about placing in dishwasher.
