Soapstone, also known as Kisii from the Kenyan tribe, is mined from pits in the area surrounding Kisii, Kenya. Carvers then carve sculptures from the natural stone. Once carved, the craftspeople smooth rough edges with sandpaper dipped in water and polish the piece to a high gloss or paint African motifs in brilliant colors with etched accents. 

Each sculpture is made by an artisan that benefits from Fair Trade. With fair wages for fair work, these artisans are able to earn money to feed their families with, send their children to school, or improve their life overall.  

Soapstone Circle of Friends is approximately 6" tall. 

Color in each statue varies.
