love mental health
We are two people with a passion that believe a better life is possible for millions of people affected by mental illness.
What we do
We want to raise money for the Birmingham and Solihull NHS Trust and Rethink Mental Illness. Our aim is to raise £3,500 by selling The Kisii Soapstone that are handmade in Kenya helping the local community.
The Kisii Soapstone is mined in the south-western part of Kenya, not far from Lake Victoria. First the raw stone is mined from the quarry and cut into manageable blocks. Then it is grated and rasped to the final shape by the artisans in the workshop. Before dyeing and incising begins each piece is sanded until it meets all our demands on quality. Consequently dyeing is done and patterns are incised with a very sharp knife. Finally the product is polished with natural wax to create these beautifully finished products.
Our target is £3,500
