The beautiful handmade trinket box features a pattern of interlaced leaves against a rich blue background. This hand carved soapstone decorative 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.

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.
