Dreamcatcher: Woven Rasta
Red, green, black and yellow have been woven into the web of this Rasta inspired dream catcher. Assorted color beads and natural feathers flow from red faux suede stands. The center piece has been hand-crocheted.
Dream catchers are an ancient spiritual tool used to protect the sleeper from bad dreams. A dream catcher should be hung over the place you sleep and where the morning light can hit it. All dreams will then filter through the dream catcher, where good dreams will glide down the feathers to the sleeper below and bad dreams will get caught in the web and be destroyed by the first beam of morning light.
This piece measures 6.5" in diameter at the largest point.
Rastafari, also known as Rastafarianism, is an Abrahamic religion that developed in Jamaica during the 1930s. It is classified as both a new religious movement and a social movement by scholars of religion.
What do the rasta colors mean?
Rastafarians adopted the colors red, yellow, and green as the color of the Rastafarian movement. The red stands for the blood of black martyrs that were shed around the world during their struggle for liberation, equal rights, and justice. Yellow represents the wealth of the homeland, Africa, particularly the gold.
Dream catchers are a First Nations sacred tool for filtering negative vibes and only allowing positive thoughts to enter the mind. They are decorated with sacred items such as feathers and beads.
We want to be clear that this is not a traditional First Nations style dream catcher. Please note: none of the dream catchers we currently have on hand are authentic Indigenous crafts. We wish to change this in the future should someone wish to barter with us so we can obtain authentically made dream catchers and offer those in our shop instead. If you're seeking authentically made Indigenous crafts, we encourage you to contact your local First Nations community center, and they can point you in the right direction.
