Kenyan Soapstone Oval Plate 'Marbled Pink'

Hand carved Kenyan oval plate, made from ethically sourced soapstone. This plate makes an excellent, quality display for your keepsakes, soap, smaller ornaments (such as our soapstone hearts) and sentimental treasures.

Soapstone is a beautifully tactile metamorphic rock with a marble-like appearance. The natural variations in the surface are part of its distinctive charm. Soapstone is a natural material, therefore each piece will have varied colours and patterns. Pink soapstone can arrive in a rosy or peachy tone.

Our soapstone products are polished and treated with natural beeswax. 

WHO MADE YOUR SOAPSTONE CARVING?

All of our contemporary soapstone products are hand carved in a small town in the South West of Kenya. Our products are carved by a youth self-help group, founded in 1996 with 40 members.
