Handmade by artisans in Kenya using traditional methods passed down through the generations, these batik bone salt and pepper shakers are beautiful and functional. Crafted from ethically-sourced, sanitized animal bone that is hand carved.

Colors vary from black to brown with different etched patterns - expect a variety with your order! 

Product Features:

  • Handcrafted and designed in beautiful styles, unique details on each piece. Because of the hand-carved and hand-painted beauty of each piece, no two are identical.
  • Naturally water and stain resistant
  • Hand wash and air dry
  • Socially responsible goods that is empowering to consumers to purchase according to their values and help alleviate poverty. Fair trade is so much more than a product assortment. It's about safe workplaces, fair wages + community investment for factory employees.
  • Made from ethically sourced animal bones that would have otherwise been discarded.
  • Each piece is approximately 3-inches tall. 

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.

Very happy with the bottle opener

I had purchased a comparable bottle opener in Nairobi and wanted a second one. It's very similar, black pattern on white bone. It's a great size and weight for opening a bottle.
