Kenyan soapstone is only found in the rural village of Tabaka in Western Kenya, close to the city of Kissi.It is a soft rock, about half chalk and marble and its colors may vary from cream, pink, yellow or dark grey. Kissi stone is easy to work, porous and it absorb colors and dyes. After carving, the stone is polished in water to have the silky aspect.

In the 1930s, Kenyans started to carve this stone into posts for carrying fat or to exchange for sisal.
