Venture Imports creates sustainable income for artisans in Kenya.
Works with two main groups: soapstone carvers and jewelry makers.
The jewelry group is located just outside Nairobi, Kenya and is run out of a married artisan couple's home where they employ other local artisans.
The soapstone group regularly employs about 100 artisans but sometimes up to 200 artisans for large orders.
Soapstone creations involve a process with many different artisans involved from mining to carving, sanding, painting, and etching.
Venture Imports started working with their current Kenyan artisan groups in 2009.
