Light a candle for awareness with our soapstone Pink Ribbon Tealight Holder. Each pink ribbon piece makes a unique way to spread the word at home or work, and makes a great gift. Just add a tealight to spread the message with Breast Cancer Site style!
Soapstone pink ribbon candle holders are handcrafted from naturally occurring soapstone, then painted pink. Paint is transparent enough to show the natural variations of soapstone.
An amazing woman in Kenya, Pauline Ntombura, is the inspiration behind these wonderful soapstone carvings. Pauline grew up as the daughter of a tribal chief in the village of Kisli in southwest Kenya. Bucking the tradition that women must stay in the home, Pauline obtained her education. Later she established a soapstone workshop which now employs more than 800 people (about 50% are women).
The fair wages Pauline pays ensures the artisans can afford decent housing, education for their children and basic health care. These carvings were also imported through a fair trade organization.

A beautiful item at a great sale price but be warned; because the sizes vary, the tealight you have may not fit! I bought two and the tealight only fits in one of them.
