The beautiful handmade Blue Desert Nomad African Trinket Box features an intricate pattern against a sky blue background. This hand carved soapstone box from Kenya adapts to many decor schemes. Carved by hand from soft soapstone by artisans in rural Kenya, the box serves beautifully storing rings or small trinkets.
Patterns and bright colors have been used in African art for centuries. This is especially true in African clothing, used as a canvas for beautiful works of art. These patterns often have a historical or symbolic meaning. They can also simply be an artist’s aesthetically pleasing design.
This special little box originates in Kenya’s Kisii District where skilled artisans excel at carving the soft soapstone into modern and functional items for the home. A second set of artists in Nairobi dye each item until a vibrant blue hue is achieved, then add the carving to the lid and around the base of the box.
