How It's Made
- A fair trade product
- Made in Kenya
- Made of Kisii Soapstone
- A story card comes with each crane
- Sold individually
This beautiful crane is a fair trade product handmade in Kenya. It is hand carved out of stone, sanded until smooth, and then polished. Since it shows 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.
These cranes are inspired by the wedding tradition of folding 1,000 origami cranes to decorate for a wedding. Sometimes the couple will fold these cranes themselves. Other times, they will be a gift from the bride’s father. Folding a crane takes time, patience, and understanding—qualities that are vital for a marriage to last and thrive. Carving them from stone is no different.
