Kenyan Soapstone Hippo Dish 'Marbled Pink'


This fun hippo is great for the bathroom but works equally well for jewellery on the bedside table or for nuts and nibbles, one of our best sellers, it will delight the whole family.

Sustainably mined in Kenya, soapstone is a beautifully tactile metamorphic rock with an appearance similar to marble. The natural variations in the surface are part of its unique beauty. Soapstone is non-porous and heat-resistant, making it great for a wide range of uses. 


Handmade in Kisii by a craft cooperative with the aim of chasing away poverty and ensuring their artisans have food, shelter, clothes, clean water to drink, medical facilities and better education for their children.
