Originating from the Dowayo/ Namji ethnic group in Cameroon, Namji Dolls feature rounded geometric forms, beaded necklaces, and cowrie shell decoration. The dolls are historically made for young girls who sling dolls over their backs to mirror the responsibility of their own mothers. Namji Dolls are also kept by older women to promote fertility.
Style your Namji atop a stack of coffee table books or nestled into a group of picture frames. As standalone pieces or groupings, these dolls are lovely gift items, especially to fashionable friends who decorate themselves with confidence and Namji Doll-style and flair. Kanju sources Namji Dolls in a variety of colors, sizes, and levels of decoration.
