Particularly African item with a story
The Namji Dolls aren’t originally decorated but plain and are used as toys for young girls. Upon reaching puberty, the doll becomes a fertility doll and lined with beads, shells, coins and other trinkets and is taken care of as if it were a real child.
Cameroon; the land of many tribal decorations
In Cameroon you will find many other home decorations that were originally used for other purposes besides these Namji Dolls. From a young age, the techniques are passed on to the next generation. In every manufactured item there are hours of manual work and passion for their own culture that the people want to pass on proudly.
