The Ashanti Doll is a unique, statement piece that can be styled as a home accent on a book shelf or coffee table and is also a lovely option for a baby shower gift bundle! Each doll is hand-carved using cedrela wood.
Historically, women would wrap and carry these dolls on their backs as if they were children, a ritual believed to support pregnancy and bring health, happiness, and a safe delivery to mamas-to-be.
The non profit group which designed this beautiful Ashanti Doll, Indego Africa, works with the artisans in a number of ways, including business training, and literacy education for the women artisans in indigenous African communities.
