kisii raw stone heart gold 1
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.
