Hi my friends! We’re busy nesting and being cozy for the holidays but I wanted to pop in with a fun giveaway to celebrate the season! St. Frank, a store I love for their epic collection of home goods, is offering up one of these amazing Juju hats to a lucky reader! As you may remember from this post, I have a small collection of them in our living room. Nearly every person who visits comments on them and I love sharing the background on their origin (*see below for a blurb about them from the St. Frank website)! I also adore that St. Frank is supporting low and middle income communities and their artisans while simultaneously helping preserve their crafts. I have an obsession with textiles from other lands, so this makes me extremely happy!
*”The Juju hat is a symbol of prosperity and divinity in Bamileke culture. The Bamileke is an ethnic group from Cameroon’s west and northeast provinces. Birds, whose feathers are used to create this elaborate headdress, are sacred to the Bamileke because their power of flight allows them to soar to the heavens. Traditionally, the Juju hat was worn by members of the high Kuosi class during Bamileke rituals and festivities. The Kuosi consisted of prominent tribal leaders, affluent landowners, and celebrated warriors. The Juju hat was worn to perform an annual dance celebrating the kingdom’s prosperity.” HOW INCREDIBLE IS THAT?!
Ok, I’ll get to it! Here are the details: Comment below with where you’d hang your very own Juju hat- I’d love some fresh ideas on where to display them! In a week from today a random winner will be chosen and receive their pick of any in-stock Juju hat from the St. Frank website. One entry per person please. Good luck everyone!
