Preparing Soapstone for Their Beautiful Sculptures

 Smooth soapstone sculptures start from huge heavy blocks mined in Tabaka, Kenya. One really appreciates the work that goes into the fair trade soapstone pieces after seeing the intense manual labor necessary to prepare the material for carving. SMOLArts is a member of the WFTO, the World Fair Trade Organization and ensures that all involved in the production of soapstone products are paid a living wage.
