Description

These beautiful hand-made, cuddly dolls are ideal for kids to learn about Australia’s indigenous people and their dynamic culture. Each doll is dressed in her own unique dress covered in Aboriginal illustrations and comes with a little name tag and explanation of what her name means in English. No two dolls are the same and are made to last a lifetime.

For two years the inmates at the Wacol Women’s Correctional Centre have been taught to make these dolls by an Aboriginal company that holds the only Aboriginal contract in a women’s prison. Today, a previous inmate works full time in the company as a seamstress and the company also employs young, single mothers to help make the dolls and put them through a sewing course to give them an opportunity to work.

Price is for 1 doll.
