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.
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
We believe that hardworking African artisans, producers and export agents hold the key to their own personal success, and that the path to success requires a steady, committed pace. Swahili extends each artisan's channel of trade from local markets to the global marketplace, all the while providing artisans with options to work from the comfort of their own homes and communities. Secure in the knowledge that the fair payment they receive will not be reduced by traveling expenses, childcare costs and haggled prices, most artisans in the Swahili network promote their family's future by using earnings to put food on the table and pay educational expenses for their children.
