Hand-carved, each board undergoes a long sanding process and is then oiled to highlight the natural grain. Each board is individually crafted from start to finish by a group of woodworkers in a fair trade environment in Kampala, Uganda. No two pieces of soapstone are exactly alike, making this holder unique and rare. Each holder is individually crafted from start to finish by a group of hand-chiselers in a fair trade environment in the Tabaka Hills of Kenya.
Rose & Fitzgerald is an art, design, and craft studio based in Kampala, Uganda, founded by a Californian couple, Courtney and Laren, who fell in love with the beauty of the indigenous materials and craftspeople they encountered in their adopted home of Africa. Rose & Fitzgerald believes the method in which each product is created is as important as the finished good itself, and that the provenance of the materials used is a crucial and meaningful part of the process. Each piece Rose & Fitzgerald produces is handmade by individual artisans using luxurious materials that have been sourced locally, such an Ankole horn, palm leaf, pure brass, Mugavu and Teak wood, leather, and organic cotton. Rose & Fitzgerald works with East Africa’s most extraordinary talents in techniques such as carpentry, hand chiseling and carving, sculpting, casting, metal working, hand looming, sewing and weaving—all techniques that have been passed down through generations.
