#ecoDesigned Product | Dolls


Why make Dolls?

  • Almost every dolls in the Cameroonian market is imported and this is not doing any good to our economy.
  • The imported dolls are mostly made from plastic and when they get bad, they contribute to plastic pollution.
  • The imported dolls are very expensive and as such, most families can not afford to purchase dolls for their kids.
  • Its fun and creative

The steps involved in the production of our ecodesigned Dolls include;

1. Collection of the textile offucts


2. Shaping and Sizing the textile offcuts to be of same sizes


3. Sewing the offcuts together to produce the #ecodesigned fabric. Once we have the #ecodesigned fabric made, we can now use it to sew our #ecodesigned doll garment.

4. Design, cut and sew the #ecodesigned doll garment of your choice and size and then stuff it with textile offcuts.

Our ecodesigned dolls simple and beautiful but give children the joy and fun of dolls.

Our dolls are stuffed with textile offcuts, hence contribute in keeping textile waste out of the environment. As compared to imported plastic dolls that sell at $5 and above, our dolls cost $2 and are recyclable.
When we sell our dolls, we ask our clients to bring them back to us in case they get torn or in case they no longer like it so that we can mend it or repurpose it to always look great. With our @ecodesigns dolls, we are putting on smiles on the faces of children.

Aaaawww.... the little girl with the little doll is too sweet!! Nice project and yes, such a good idea to make locally from repurposed material. Do you stitch on faces too?

Not yet stitching on faces but we have found a way for an artist to draw the face and then we can add synthetic hair waste to the head of the doll so that it looks exactly like the imported dolls. Thanks for the words of encouragement and support @artemislives.
