CULTURE DOLL: ARTISAN-MADE JEWELRY & ONLINE STORE
Owner and Artist, Tiffany Bryce, honors her African-America, Indigenous ancestry through visual and sensual arts, like: crafting, sound healing, writing, aromatics, urban farming and fooding. She makes dolls from scrap fabric, up-cycled jewelry made from bottle caps, cans, gemstones and other unique collectables. She began making hand puppets from old socks in 2010 to entertain her young children during story-time. In 2014 she made her first up-cycled mixed-media Culture Doll as a gift to the lead mama-teacher of her families' homeschool co-op.
In 2017, she was awarded an opportunity to showcase her art at Canimals!, an eco-African handcrafted sculpture art exhibit space at Eastern Market DC. In the spirit of Kujichagulia, a Swahili word which means self-determination, she showed up on the DC art scene as, Rose Phatma Kongolizamawi. It was at this time that CULTURE DOLL, the brand, was officially shared with the public. Her mission?... To share unique eco-centric art, handmade with an ancestral flair.
Culture Doll combines her love for African art, handmade dolls, nature and indigenous cultures with an inherent desire to do her part in the global challenge to reduce waste. Through hard work, faith, and the help of family and friends, Culture Doll is utilizing old and new resources to up-cycle her 'eco-artist' dreams into reality.
Today, the increasing popularity of Roses' handmade dolls, up-cycled creations, and vintage collectibles continues to push her Culture Doll creations upwards to higher heights.
