Kenyan artisans hand carve this set of salt cups and spoons from creamy white soapstone, omitting the polishing process to keep the bowl silky smooth to the touch. Since soapstone can contain small veins of color from various minerals, each small bowl and spoon is completely one-of-a-kind. Sold as a set of two cups and two spoons (four items total). Because these are handmade items crafted from a varying natural material, each is unique.
Dimensions: Small Cup: 2"L x 2"W x 1.25"H Large Cup: 3"L x 3"W x 1.5"H Spoon: 3.5"L x 0.75"W x 0.5"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.
