Dreamcatchers 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.
The  dreamcatchers  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.
The dreamcatcher 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.
