These beautiful natural standing words are a fair trade product handmade in Kenya. Each word is hand-carved out of stone, sanded until smooth, and then polished, using only simple hand tools. Since these show the natural colors of the stone, some color variations should be expected. One can often see shades of cream, gray, pink, and brown in the design. They are wide enough to stand on a shelf.

Meet the Artisan
Venture Imports, cares about the artisan’s families and are against child labor. But more than just that, they want all children to be able to get an education and to have time to play! The artisans are able to work from home, or they can bring their children to the cooperative to play while their mothers work. All of the artisan partner’s children are in school—something which is not always the case in a community where school fees are often prohibitive to many parents.
