Description

Fair Trade - Naturally occurring rose-colored soapstone is locally sourced and carved by artisans in southwest Kenyan to create this stately 9 piece nativity. Each figure highlights its own unique natural patterns and tones, and is finished with simply hand-carved details. Polished to a smooth, lustrous finish. Stone colors may vary slightly.  Tallest figure measures 6.5" H x 2" W.

This Nativity set was acquired through a Fair Trade organization. Fair trade pays impoverished artisans a fair price for their work and puts people first, not profits. Artisans: Kisii, a city in western Kenya, is surrounded by soapstone quarries and is well-known both for the quality of its soapstone and the skill of its carvers. Nyamarambe, a rural village near Kisii, is the home of the 150-member Nyabigena Soapstone Carvers Cooperative. This civic-minded group provides work for its members while also giving back to its community.
