Hello Yellow

Today I'm inspired by the color yellow! So fresh, it feels like summer already:-)
Traditionally worn by Village Chiefs in the Cameroon region of central Africa, Juju hats (image above) have since gained popularity with interior designers, and are often used as an eye-catching accessory for the home. Beautiful bird feathers are painstakingly hand sewn onto a raffia fiber base/basket that splays out into a huge circle. Feathers are considered rare objects of beauty and a symbol of prosperity and wealth associated with the positive qualities of birds. When not in use, the Juju hat can be neatly folded in on itself for easy storage (as shown). A perfect example of fine, unique and skillful weaving from Central West Africa, Juju hats are available via the lovely webshop from blogger and entrepreneur Louise form Table Tonic. She even sells lovely morrocan pouffs and bedspreads to name a few.

and what about these handwoven cushions with a touch of yellow?

All items are availabe in the Table Tonic store

Q. Which one would you choose?

Although yellow is not my favourite color I think this one is a good match with that Juju hat:-)
