Carvers in Kenya's western highlands craft the basic form for a small catch-all bowl from soft soapstone. Artisans in a Nairobi workshop then add a deep black dyed finish and etched details.
Impact: By following fair trade principles, Swahili Modern offers their artisan partners the means to build stronger homes and invest in their communities on their own terms. Through the exportation of traditional baskets and goods, the generational skills continue to bring meaning, stability and pride to African communities.
