I just saw these beautiful wooden Clonette Dolls by Noush on the Visi webiste. These dolls are all hand carved from untreated wood. The lady behind Noush, Manoushka Kraal, was born and raised in Netherlands but now lives in South Africa. She collaborates with various Master crafters in Kwa-Zulu Natal to create her range of handmade products.

“I decided to make work inspired by Clonette dolls. These popular African dolls are nowadays made out of plastic, but were originally carved out of wood. We decided to transform them back to where they once came from. They are known as little “angels” that will look after your baby. As a little friend they will guide your little one through life.”
