Can we say more than these Ashanti Doll Key Chains are absolutely adorable! and make excellent gifts! Each Doll is hand carved by artisans using cedrela wood.
Inspired by the traditional fertility dolls of the Ashanti people. 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.
