Soapstone Friend Heart
These colorful, thoughtful hand carved hearts are made of soapstone—a soft, smooth stone. They were hand-carved by a fair trade women's cooperative in Kenya called Tabaka. This cooperative was established to eradicate suffering in the Kisii area of Kenya. Mr. Ellie Pooh believes in empowering these soapstone artisans by providing fair wages and markets for their products outside Kenya. They are approximately 1.5 inches wide.
