Soapstone Animals are here! We think they are absolutely adorable. Each one is made by hand by the widows in Kenya.
We recommend displaying them in the shade and not in direct sunlight, as their paint may fade.
What is Soapstone?
Soapstone is a metamorphic rock consisting mostly of the mineral talc. It is a relatively soft stone, a calcium carbonate.
As the talc in soapstone is soft to the touch, it gives you the smooth feeling of rubbing a piece of dry soap. Thus the name was derived as “soap” stone.
