These hats were originally intended for use in a ceremonial dance costume in the grassland region of Cameroon ... they have long been collected by people in the west for their rare beauty and vibrant colors ..The center of production of the hats is the small town of Baffosam and surrounding villages ..extended families have worked together for generations , weaving the raffia , tying feathers to the wood sticks to create these amazing geometric works of art , today it has become a cottage industry . Many small colorful shops line the street of the central market where you can visually inspect and purchase hats and masks.. It is amazing to see the growing prosperity that is connected to the increasing popularity of these hats ..I first became interested in the Bamileke on a 2004 trip to Cameroon & West Africa and began selling these Headdresses in 2005 and have sold them on ebay every other year since then . I just returned from a trip to Africa in july and met a new artisan and his family who are superb hat makers , I think the hats in this shipment are some of the finest I have ever seen . the family is also very innovative in their shipping as well and the hats arrived here in pristine condition .. I am now offering these hats in various sizes , which will allow you to find the size that suits the space you have or you can combine one or more to create the wanted effect in contemporary home decor . (Shipping) - packing the hats for transport is key ..I have worked out a simple method of stabilizing the hats with a inverted cone to hold it in place . this is a sensitive requirement necessary to insure the hat is not damaged in transport ..It has worked well as I have not had a single hat returned .. All hats are wall hanging ready... Courtesy to the design trade.. International shipping is not free , but is possible at the going postal rate .. .thanks for looking !
