Each dream catcher tells a story. Gently touch the net and you can feel safety and protection. Touch the snow-white feathers and you feel positive vibrations, deep emotions, and rich traditions of natural tribes. These traditional handmade masterpieces immerse you in the heart of authentic tribal history where culture and traditions blend together.
Originally created by North American Indians, dream catchers are considered as a symbol of oneness among numerous indigenous cultures and regions. Native cultures believe that both good and bad dreams fill the air at night. The dream catcher acts like a spider’s web by trapping the bad dreams or visions while allowing the good ones to filter through. The bad dreams caught in the web get destroyed when the sunlight of morning hits the dream catcher, while the good dreams filter down through the feathers and gently reach the sleeping person below. The dream catchers can also be considered as apotropaic charms that provide protection from any kind of evil influence, not just from bad dreams and nightmares.
Dream catchers have become very popular over the years in the world of interior design. They usually consist of a wooden hoop covered in a net or web of natural fibres, with meaningful sacred items like feathers and beads attached, hanging down from the bottom of the hoop.
We handcraft impressive large-size dream catchers using fully natural materials and traditional ways of production. Our dream catchers dominate the interior to create strong emotions.
The dream catchers originated from Native American cultures, more specifically the Ojibwe tribe. The Ojibwe called dream catchers ‘asabikeshiinh’, which means ‘spider’. According to the Ojibwe dream catcher legend, a Spider Woman named Asibikaashi took care of all the people and children on their land but as the tribe spread further and further, it became harder for her to protect everyone.
Since she could not go to every single child at night and protect them from evil influences, she got help from the maternal figures of the tribe. Ojibwe mothers and grandmothers would make dreamcatchers by weaving webs over willow hoops and hanging them above every child’s bed to trap bad dreams and nightmares.
The Lakota tribe have a different legend about the origin of dreamcatchers, but it is believed that the charms were passed on from the Ojibwe tribe in various ways. In the Lakota Legend, a spiritual leader had a vision of Iktomi, a great trickster and a teacher spirit, who took the form of a spider.
Iktomi took the spiritual leader’s willow hoop and began to weave a web over it as he spoke. He spoke about the circle of life and told the leader that there are both good and bad forces at play in a life cycle. If you should listen to the good ones, you will be steered in the right direction, but the bad forces would cause harm.
Once he had finished spinning his web, Iktomi showed the spiritual leader that it was a perfect circle with a hole in the middle. He stated that the good ideas would get caught in the web while the bad would go right through the hole. The spiritual leader brought this knowledge back to his people who began to use dreamcatchers to filter their dreams and capture all the good ones and let the bad ones go.
