Designers such as Alexandra Branca have made these Bamike feather headdresses from Africa so popular. Symbolizing prosperity and believed to possess the positive qualities of birds they represent the beauty and fragility of life. Typically worn by royal dancers during ceremonies held by the tribal chief, Juju hats offer a burst of burst of color to your decor!
