In Ghanaian mythology, fertility dolls are thought to bring good luck to women trying to conceive, as well as health and happiness to expecting mamas-to-be. Historically, women would wrap and carry these dolls on their backs as if they were children, a ritual believed to induce pregnancy and ensure a safe delivery. How beautiful is that?


All profits fund educational training programs for the women who handcraft our products.

Since partnering with Indego Africa, 89% of our artisan partners have risen above the poverty line. That’s impact.


Each Indego Africa product is made by hand using traditional techniques. Small variation in color & design is part of what makes each piece uniquely beautiful. Please handle with care.
