This stunning house candle holder is hand carved from Kisii soapstone. Kisii soapstone is mined by hand from one of six quarries in Western Kenya. Carvers cut the large rocks into smaller pieces, then chisel a rough shape into the stone. Women then sandwash the stone pieces and polish them. A clear wax is then applied to accentuate the stone’s natural lustre.

The stone carvers of Kisii are one of the many craft groups working with Undugu Fair Trade, one of our partners in Kenya.

Undugu was established to work with street children and support development work in Nairobi slums. Producer co-operatives are formed to provide income generation for over 800 families and groups throughout Kenya. Producers benefit from business training and health education. Read more here.
