Print Story Card


These lovely paperweights are hand-carved from kisii soapstone by artisans in Western Kenya. Each paperweight is inscribed with an inspiring word—in English on one side, Swahili on the other. Kisii stone, found only in Kenya, is a soft material that is easy to carve into many forms. Its satiny finish is achieved through multiple stages of sanding, followed by waxing. A Ten Thousand Villages exclusive design.
