The soapstone, called Kisii, is found in western Kenya, in a region called Tabaka. This is the only area where this stone is found in Kenya. Soapstone carving is a significant source of income for the people of this area.

When the Kisii rocks are dug from the quarries, they are rough and brownish. Only under the hands of the carvers they show their soft white quality. Using simple hand tools, the stone is transformed to any possible shape, reflecting the creativity and workmanship of the carvers.
