Black and White Zebra Pattern Namji Doll
Let's add some color and culture to your home with these beautiful and unique Namji Figures.
Namji Dolls originated from the Namji Tribe in Northwest Cameroon, these dolls are considered to be among the finest dolls in Africa.
These dolls are traditionally made for young girls to play with. The doll would have a name, be fed, be talked to, and be carried strapped to the back everywhere the child would go. The Namji Doll helps prepare young women for their roles as a mother. Adult women also keep these to encourage fertility and as a good omen for easy childbirth.
We work with artisans who have migrated from Cameroon to South Africa. Each doll is handmade with love and it shows in the detail. They are crafted from a variety of wood, beads, shells and metal.
