An angel so unique, inquiries were made, orders taken. And what joy they

Ragbabies is dedicated to promoting positive images of African Americans.
By having children of all cultures make African American Ragbabies, using fabrics and objects from Africa and America, they will come to appreciate multiple cultures.
By playing with their Ragbaby, we hope to promote harmony and the understanding of differences.
Through this art, children may realize the beauty of what they've made can also be the beauty of America.
