Dolls

Dolls are one of the favorite gift items for girls. Many people have large doll collections. Calabash's collection of South African dolls offers an interesting selection for both gifts and collectors.

There are basically two types of dolls: soft dolls and dolls that stand. Many of the tribal groups have their own traditional dolls which depict part of their culture. They represent gifts of love, wellness, fertility and healers(sangomas).

The beauty of the dolls is created by women through the use of bright fabrics and beads. They use this doll making to pass on the traditions from generation to generation.

There are some dolls made in workshops established for people with disabilities where they learn to use their talents to create the dolls. Each dolls varies in size and price and each one is unique. It is fun to watch how people get attached to a particular doll because it speaks to them in special way.
