Carefully carved from ethically sourced, natural cow-bone by Kenyan artisans. The bone is sanitized and highly polished, then batiked by placing wax on the white bone and dipping it in a dark brown/black dye, resulting in traditional African mud cloth patterns. Each piece is truly one-of-a-kind! Chopsticks measure approximately 9 inches in length. Due to the hand carved nature, actual size may vary slightly.
Story Behind the Art:
The bone is "batiked" which is an age old art process used in Africa. The patterns are applied by placing wax on the white bone and dipping the bone into a dark brown/black dye, resulting in the beautiful African mud cloth designs.
