    Story Behind the Art:
    This piece is carved by the artists of SMOLArt a group of artists who live in the rural village of Tabaka, Kenya, the heart of soapstone crafts. The name, a shortened version of Small, Medium, and Large Artists, refers to the size of the wholesale soapstone products the artisans make, not their stature. Established in 1990, SMOLArt is a member of the WFTO, and as such assures that the artisans are paid a fair price for their work. In addition, the organization support community development by contributing to projects that improve living conditions, education, and health of their members and the village at large.

      This chess set is lovely to display and the soapstone pieces feel smooth and are a pleasure to handle. But be sure to check your shipment carefully because the pieces are fragile and the board, which is heavy, is also very fragile and will not tolerate much bumping or knocking. My order arrived well-packed and without any noticeable dents in the box, the board protected by several layers of packing and it was still cracked. They replaced it immediately, and it was worth the effort to have a set I not only like to look at, but like to play with.
