NAMJI DOLLS

Our Namji Dolls are made by the Namji tribe in Cameroon.  The Namji people inhabit West of North Cameroon.  Namji Dolls have been used as good luck charms in ritual practices, as amulets and have been treasured as family heirlooms. 

Namji Dolls are striking to look at they have an interesting history.  The Namji doll helped prepare the young Namji woman for her role as a mother in her future life. They were also kept by older women to promote fertility.  Because of their authenticity and cultural heritage, Namji dolls are considered among the finest and most beautiful dolls in Africa. 

Namji dolls are adorned with glass bead necklaces, cowrie shells, metal strips and fiber; stands on a wood base.  They are carved from solid pine hardwood.  We carry an extensive variety of styles, sizes and colors in our collection and each Namji doll is an “original” work of art.  They are individually handmade making them unique and a one of a kind piece.  

No two are exactly alike which adds to the value of each Namji doll.  Please note, each piece of a specific style is similar, but not identical.  Our website photos are a close representation of this work, but may not be identical to the piece you receive.

Namji Dolls are beautiful, cultural and make excellent gifts.
