Juju hats are traditionally worn by village chiefs during celebrations as a symbol of status within their societies. Natural or dyed bird feathers are carefully hand sewn onto a raffia base, which spreads out into a huge circle. Feathers are associated with beauty and are a symbol of prosperity and wealth. These sought after hats are available in various colours, and can be displayed on stands or hung on a wall.
Ngala items weave together European and African design ethos in a sophisticated way that avoid overt references to both European high design and African tribal art. The result is a contemporary “safari chic” that is at once relaxed and inviting; cool and alive; that is neither colonial nor primitive, but indigenous. Of Africa. 100% of their products are organic, fair trade, sustainable and made by hand in South Africa.
