This red heart dish is a fair trade product handmade in Kenya. They are hand-carved out of stone, sanded until smooth, and then polished. Since the natural heart couple 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. The other red design was dyed a bold color. Then an artisan uses a knife to etch designs into each dish that has a carving. This unique catchall can be used to hold change, jewelry, keys, or office supplies. For decorative use only; getting them wet could damage the dye.
