Cameroon Juju Hat-Cocarde 50cm

$230.00 NZD

Meticulously handmade by artisans in Cameroon, each feather is hand sewn onto a raffia fibre base that displays the feathers out into a large circle. Traditionally worn by Village Chiefs, these breathtaking works of art transform into stunning wall hangings that bring texture and personality to any space. 

  • Natural or dyed chicken feathers and raffia
  • Diameter 50cm
  • Handmade in Cameroon, Central Africa
  • Folds neatly into a compact, drum shape that protects the feathers
  • Keep out of direct sunlight to prevent fading


HANDLING/CARE
To open, remove the string tied around the outside, hold the string handles on the basket base and gently push the centre of the basket in as far as it will go and the centre feathers open.

Adjust the headdress by moving the feathers gently side to side, the feather timber arms up and down and the basket in and out. Please do not pull at the feathers as they may come out. Mount the headdress on the wall by using one of the string handles on a picture hook.

CARE
Moth prevention is required with feathers, we recommend you dust and lightly vacuum the headdress every month. Remove from the wall, with feathers facing down, open and close with a gentle shake; follow with a dry cloth wipe and vacuum. Do not display in direct sunlight as colour fade may occur. When storing we recommend a dry, sealed, plastic box with moth repellent.
