Soapstone Maasai Plate Set
This is a set of 3 soapstone plates of different sizes, painted with the traditional Maasai Tribe of East Africa. The production process of any soapstone piece is very tedious as they first have to be mined, carved by specialists and later on smooth polished and then painted by hand.
As with all handmade soapstone items, variations of colour and style can occur.
We recommend to use these plates for decor purposes or for very unique and special events. Don’t put them in the dishwasher or expose them to extreme heat. Wipe with a cloth and a little water to clean.
