Namji dolls have been around for many many years, originating in Cameron, West Africa. Traditionally these dolls are fertility talisman, presented to young women as a special gift with the intention to help inspire fertility in their marriage. Young women carry them around as they would babies until they conceive. There are also masculine versions of these Namji dolls, gifted to men with the same intention.
Today they are used in households around the whole for decorative purposes and can be styled into any interior space. They are truly unique and special. Our Namji Dolls are made in Johannesburg South Africa, to the highest grade with the added finish of a classic perspex base.
