Wow! Have you already seen these? Today I want to share with you my latest obsession when it comes to interior decoration. When I first saw a Juju Hat, I thought it was some kind of amazing, perfect, grand wall decoration that I had to have! Especially because I just love eclectic African inspired home decor! They have been a trend now for a couple of years, but they’re still having a major moment in the decor spotlight as you can see on Pinterest and I loooove it.
The Juju Hats were originally made of bird feathers and traditionally worn by the royal dancers during important ceremonies held by the tribal chief in Cameroon, like weddings. The Juju Hat – or as they are called in Cameroon – the Bamileke or Tyn hats from the Bamileke tribes have come a long way from being a traditional ceremonial headdress to decorate beautiful interior designer homes as contemporary wall hangings.
Each hat is unique and takes 2-3 days to complete and because of the craftsmanship these are expensive. How amazing that you can now buy them for just 240 euro instead of 600 at Westwing in a lot of bold colors! Go now before it’s too late and add some unique twist to your home!
For inspiration on how to decorate using African Juju Hats, I picked out a few of my favorite interiors decorated with these exotic hats.
