Inspired by the story of the Christmas Mouse, these mice are cute and entertaining any time of year. They measure 2.5″ long x 1.25″ wide. Each mouse is hand carved from Kiisi Kenya soapstone. Your item may differ slightly from the product image.
Designed by Sheryl Tripp, Administrative Assistant for Expanding Opportunities and hand carved by Richard Jumla in Kenya, Africa.
The soapstone is quarried in Tabaka, Kenya. It is sold to soapstone rough carvers who then sell them to the finishers. The finishers use water, sandpaper, and a small knife to finish the piece and personalize it. The piece is either polished in the natural soapstone or dyed and then polished.
