Namji Dolls, also known as Dowayo Dolls are fertility dolls native to the Namji tribe of North Cameroon. The blacksmiths of the tribe make this doll from carved African Rosewood and decorate them with beads, metals, fibre, cowrie shells, coins, and leather..
Namji Dolls are fertility dolls given to brides during a wedding ceremony. The Namji believe that these fertility dolls are made with potent charms that enhance the bride’s fertility,
Namji Dolls can also be used to make marriage proposals. A man gifts a doll to the girl he wants to marry and if she accepts it, it means she accepts his proposal. She then carries the doll around as a fertility doll. As soon as she has a child, she bequeaths the doll to her daughter. More recently, Namji Dolls are used as decorative pieces for homes and offices. Because of their authenticity and cultural heritage, Namji Dolls are considered the most beautiful dolls in Africa. This makes them good pieces for display.
