The soap stone, the world's softest stone, is named after the smooth touch of soap. The raw material of this product is the natural soap stone produced from the KISII region in southwestern Kenya. Due to the natural soft and smooth material, it is suitable for hand-carved into a variety of different shapes. It is one of the representative products of Kenya. The producer is a group of stone excavators working in the KISII area - "KISII Coop". Local production of soap and stone crafts is a very important source of income. KISSI Coop is not only helping them to carry out merchandise marketing but also nurturing follow-up talents and school operations, etc., in order to allow these employees to continue their work on the soap stone process. All KISSI Coop's soap stone products, from mining to carving, coloring, and grinding, do not use machines at all, and they use only two hands to complete the product.
