Bamileke Headdress

Calculated at checkout

    All the way from Africa, the striking Bamileke feather headdress is handmade by local tribes in the Cameroon and traditionally worn by royal dancers during ceremonies held by the Chief as they symbolise prosperity, freedom and beauty.

    Also known as Juju hats, the headdress is made of dyed chicken feathers hand stitched into a raffia basket, and ingeniously folds into itself for easy transportation from ceremony to ceremony or to your front door!

    We love how intensely coloured these Bamileke headdresses are, and how their rotund organic shape adds an exotic far-flung glamour to even the smallest space. They are truly remarkable, and ever-so eco, in that they promote fair trade, support indigenous lifestyles in Africa and utilise every part of a domestic product important in the every day food chain.

    At Eco Chic, we are passionate about preserving the environment and supporting Fair Trade agreements. We only supply products that are both socially and economically sustainable. Our Bamileke pieces are made in Africa by a certified Fair Trade organisation using time-honored techniques. Fair Trade not only creates justice in international economies, it supports communities to become self-sufficient and secure for the future.
