are said to come from the Ojibwa (Chippewa) North American Indians. Native Americans believe that the night air is
filled with dreams both bad and good. The idea was the traditional dream catcher was
intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, while letting
positive dreams through. The positive dreams would slip through the hole in the
centre of the dream catcher, and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person
below. The negative dreams would get caught up in the web, and expire when the
first rays of the sun struck them.
were a handmade object based on a
willow hoop, on which they wove a loose net or web. The dreamcatcher was then
decorated with personal and sacred items such as feathers and beads. The
resulting "dream-catcher", hung above the bed, and was then used as a
charm to protect sleeping children from nightmares. Dreamcatchers made of
willow and sinew were not meant to last forever but instead, intended to dry
out and collapse over time as the child grows up.
myths have spread across the world and are now found everywhere. In Indonnesia
they embrace many spiritual beliefs and have readily embraced dreamcatchers and
windchimes. They are skilled artisans and produce a wide variety of designs in
a multitude of colours. They use natural products such as suede, wood beads, carved
bone, shell etc. They also produce more colourful dyed designs in modern
products which are popular in childrens bedrooms. They use bright nylon threads
with matching colour feathers and sometimes silver thread with coloured beads. They
also branch out from traditional hoops to shapes such as hearts and have
dangling mirrors etc.
