Maison et Objet Fab Find: Kronbali

Kronbali Juju hat Autumn 2013 a

Maison et Objet was a HUGE show outside Paris.  Buy the time I hit the last building I was running on fumes.  Thinking I had lost the will to see anything else I spotted Kronbali.  They are a wonderful French company that imports exotic and tribal items.  I was particularly taken with the multi colored Juju hat and the Juju table. What a clever use of a Juju hat. I love this item because it not only has history but adds texture and color in a space where you do not need more are or a mirror.   And If you have been sleeping under a rock for the past 8 years a juju hat is….

Juju Hats

 Kronbali Orange juju hat

The Juju hat, Bamiléké feather headdress or Tyn Hat, symbol of prosperity, believed to possess the positive qualities of birds and the beauty as well as fragility of life, is traditionally worn by the royal dancers during important ceremonies held by the tribal chief.

The headdress is made of natural or dyed chicken feathers or of wild bird (such as guinea fowl) feathers stitched onto a woven raffia support and can be unfolded by pulling on a leather strap on the back, into an amazing circular hat of a circumference of about 80 cm (31.5 inches). When not in use, the headdress can be folded into a basket shape, taking up very little space, with the feathers neatly protected inside. The headdress comes in a wide range of rich colors, either monochrome or a combination of colors, depending on the inspiration of the craftsman.

The Juju hat, which can be transformed into an impressive wall hanging, has become very popular over the years in the world of interior decoration. Kronbali has taken these traditional pieces of incredible craftsmanship a little further. We have the “headdresses” made in four different sizes: mini, small, standard (the traditional size) and large.

One can now play not only with color but with size too!

Our Juju hats (Bamiléké Feather Headdresses or Tyn hats) from Cameroon come in four sizes.

Mini size : 31 cm – 40 cm (12.2 inches – 15.7 inches) diameter
Small size : 41 cm – 50 cm (16.2 inches – 19.7 inches) diameter
