Milli Small Soapstone Box
Soapstone is a metamorphic rock that, for thousands of years, has been used as material to make objects and ornaments. Our soapstone collection was made to bring a touch of Kenyan art to your home decor. The stone is carved in Kisii and then the pieces are carefully shipped to our workshop in Nairobi, where the mamas are responsible for adding a touch of personal art to every item. They wash, paint, polish and carve to produce unique designs that represent their Kenyan heritage. It might take up to 11 hours to have one single piece of soapstone ready, but the result pays off.
The smallest version of the Milli box is the place for tiny and delicate items you love, such as earrings, charms and other special pieces. It keeps them safe and brings a bit of Kenya to your room, on a personal and unique design.
