Kenyan artisans hand carve beautiful all-natural heart keepsakes from creamy white soapstone. Since soapstone can contain small veins of color from various minerals, each heart is completely one-of-a-kind. Sold individually. Because these are handmade items crafted from a varying natural material, each is unique. Dimensions: 2.25"L x 2"W x 1.5"H Crafted from: Soapstone
At Swahili Modern, we believe that adaptation helps traditional African craft forms thrive. Artisans can earn a living from the comfort of home by doing creative work, so they have options beyond seeking work in cities. Through export, skills inherited through generations—sometimes with deep-rooted cultural significance—continue to bring meaning, stability, and a sense of pride to entire communities.
