My name Lubono, means "Wealth" in Tonga. My parents came from a simple village many hours away in the bush called Jack Mwanapapa, and they wanted to give me a name that could bring me good fortune. And, do you know, I have started a very successful business making dresses. Many ladies come to me for the latest styles.

Hi, I'm Lubono 13"

  • 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.
