This cute little giraffe sculpture was hand-carved out of soapstone by a fair trade women 's cooperative in Kenya called Tabaka.
This cooperative was established to eradicate suffering in the Kisii area of Kenya. Mr. Ellie Pooh believes in empowering these soapstone artisans by providing fair wages and markets for their products outside Kenya.
Soapstone gives an incredible smooth and heavy feel when you hold it. Every sculpture is made completely by hand so no two are exactly alike.
This soapstone "good luck " giraffe is decorative but also can be used as a paperweight.
