This Etch Soapstone Vessel is a collaboration between Citta and Asili Design. The vessel is designed in our New Zealand studio by product designer Nikolai Sorensen. It’s then skillfully hand-carved in Kenya by Asili.
The design celebrates the handmade nature of the manufacturing process. Each piece is intentionally irregular with etched grooves that provide a more structured element. The two design features are combined to give the vessel a topographical feel.

Tampico is a very robust fibre from the yellow leaf of the agave cactus, which grows only in the highlands of northern Mexico.
Tampico has great water-retaining properties, is resistant and hard-wearing, and keeps its shape without softening. The fibre has tiny hooks on the shafts, which gives it a natural slightly abrasive quality.
