Additional Information: From greater Johannesburg, South Africa the dolls are handcrafted in the Nguni-tradition depicting Kingdom of Swaziland women and girls in modern traditional dress. The fabric has Swaziland's flag as the pattern. The Swazi Beehive coiffure is a traditional hairstyle for the people who also shape their grass huts in the same style. Mom and her teenage daughter carry babies on their backs which is common throughout Sub-Saharan Africa where the rural women do all the heavy lifting and will walk miles with baby and loads up to 150 pounds of food, water, and firewood.
