31 Jul 2021 Fair Trade Kenyan Trinket Boxes and Trays
These fair trade boxes and trays are ideal for storing small mementos and trinkets. These items are made in Kenya using soapstone, a durable material often used in sculpture and functional art. Our artists specialize in making soapstone boxes and trays. Soapstone is a natural quarried stone. It’s a metamorphic rock that got its name from the soft, or soapy, feel of its surface, which is thanks to the presence of talc in the stone. Check out the trays and trinket boxes below made of beautiful soapstone.
All of these products are fair trade, an alternative business model that values safe workplaces, fair wages, and community investment for factory employees. Craft Montaz is a socially responsible company, and these practices empower consumers to purchase according to their values and help alleviate global poverty. When you purchase through Craft Montaz, you are not only supporting local artisans from all over the world, but also helping to preserve their unique craft-making practices that typically date back hundreds, if not thousands of years.
