Milumbe means "message" in my language, Lozi. My father says that on the night before  I was born he had a dream in which a young girl came to his house with a letter for him. It was from his mother, who had passed away many years before, that a precious gift was on its way for him. It was me!

Hi, I'm Milumbe (8")

  • This doll of color is made by hand by our dedicated craftswomen who are mothers of children with disabilities at the Mama Bakhita Cheshire Home in Livingstone, Zambia.

    Every doll is a unique individual made of natural fiber. The skin is 100% cotton jersey, the hair is 100% wool and clothing is made from traditional cotton chitenge cloth.

    Zambezi dolls are soft and huggable, good for the environment and good for the heart. Stylish or funny, dark or light, Zambezi Dolls are a perfect friend for children of any age.
