Stand with 20" Juju Hat, Natural

$340.00 $0.00

Handmade by artisans in Cameroon, Juju hats are traditionally worn by village chiefs during celebrations as a symbol of status within their societies.  Natural or dyed bird feathers are carefully hand sewn onto a raffia base, which spreads out into a huge circle. Feathers are associated with beauty and are a symbol of prosperity and wealth.  These sought after hats are available in various colours, and can be displayed on stands or hung on a wall.  Due to the nature of production methods and the use of natural materials, each product may vary slightly in both dimensions and coloring - we believe that these natural variations enhance the authenticity of each item. Includes stand.

CARE
Feathers that are colored should not be placed in direct sunlight as the dye made fade over time.  Feathers are natural materials that will constantly change.  As a result, Juju Hats may become slightly uneven and obtain minor cracks or unevenness, thus adding to its unique qualities.  Though the Juju Hat is initially fumigated and pre-treated with insect repellent, treating your Juju Hat periodically against moths or other bugs that my be naturally attracted is recommended.  You can do this by placing the headdress in a plastic bag and putting it in a freezer overnight; alternatively, attaching a small satchel of lavender, cedar wood or moth balls on the back of the headdress will natural repel bugs.
