This mini hippopotamus is carved from dark Kisii stone before being hand painted. Made in Kenya as part of our Fair Trade collection.
The Kisii Soapstone is only found in Kenya and is easy to carve into many forms. Through multiple stages of sanding, the carvers are able to create a satiny finish with a final wax.
Fair Trade items are purchased at fair prices from artisans in developing countries. This global movement helps put people first! When you purchase Fair Trade, you help provide income for basic living expenses, while also empowering artisans.
