Originating from the Namji tribe in Cameroon, Namji dolls are fertility dolls which have various purposes and multiple meanings. They are used for play and magic. They are used as toys with special significance, as charms to enhance women's childbearing ability, as sympathetic medicine to aid barren women and in sex education. The concept of fertility is highly valued in African societies as being the essence of life, thus the value of the Namji doll.
Namji dolls are also carried as good luck during a hunt.
Namji dolls are considered among the finest and most beautiful dolls of Africa.
The artisans who have created these dolls migrated from Cameroon to Morocco. Each doll is handmade with love and it shows in the detail. They are crafted from a variety of wood, beads, shells and metal.
