Juju hats or Tyn hats, were worn by royal dancers during Bamileke tribal ceremonies and are created from natural or dyed chicken and wild bird feathers. The feathers are woven into the supportive rafia base and can be closed up into a bundle for storage. The rafia works as as protection for the feathers. Once you receive your Juju hat, you pull the strings and it opens up to a large, beautiful art piece.
Juju hats are a symbol of prosperity and the feathers, the purity of life and birds. Intricately made by artisans, the creation and appreciation of these hats has been handed down from generation to generation.
The Juju hat is an intriguing and stylish design option, a stunning show piece. A mixture of a contemporary look, but with a history of tradition and culture. Not only is it a beautiful piece for your home, but buying one supports the artisans who take pride into making each Juju hat unique and beautiful.
