Product overview: The calcareous rock material Soapstone or Täljsten in swedish, comes from the mountains of southwestern Kenya. Since the villages in the area often lack power supply, each item is completely cut and sculpted by hand. The fair-trade manufactured items contribute to important income for local people in the area.
Ethics & story: Handmade in Kenya. Afroart Studio has created a collection of toys where craft and design unite. The patterns are printed with hand carved wooden blocks on cotton cloths.
