Visit www.ethidolls.com where they tell the stories of real African women rulers from history via illustrated story and audio books and design the authentic dolls that represent these remarkable women. Culturally authentic, Makeda® The Queen of Sheba Doll's dress material was handwoven in Ethiopia in support of Fair Trade Principles and her neck tattoo is an adornment Ethiopian women still wear today. Queen Mother Yaa Asantewaa of the Asante (what is now modern day Ghana) wears the traditional style dress and design pattern of royal women in the late 1800s, lavish gold jewelry representing the Gold Coast of Africa (Ghana) and sports the traditional Ghanaian hair style of hair strands twisted with thread. And these real women leaders had remarkable life journeys. Makeda was the first woman ruler of Ethiopia over 3000 years ago and traveled from Ethiopia to Jerusalem to visit King Solomon. Queen Mother Yaa Asantewaa at the age of 60 in 1900 inspired her Asante countrymen to fight the British for their freedom and liberty. The products in EthiDolls' African Heritage Signature Collection are culturally authentic, educational, inspirational and fun.
