I have been yearning for a feather Juju Hat for what seems like ages. What the hell is a Juju hat you ask? Behold:
Traditionally worn by Village Chiefs in the Cameroon region of central Africa, Juju hats have since gained popularity with interior designers, and are often used as an eye-catching accessory for the home. Beautiful bird feathers are painstakingly hand sewn onto a raffia fiber base/basket that splays out into a huge circle. Feathers are considered rare objects of beauty and a symbol of prosperity and wealth associated with the positive qualities of birds.
Very much a trend of the moment, the concern is that by the time I save up to buy one, that they will be yesterday’s trend. But I truly believe that I love the pop of color and the layers of texture so much that this is not something I will stash away in my storage room in a year. I think it would look gorgeous over a guest bed, mantle or piano.
The lovely Louise has plenty in stock. I just can’t decide if I want the orange or pink.
