Dream Catcher History

Dream catchers are native american decorations that are meant to catch any bad dreams and keep the sleeper safe from them.

Historians have traced use of the dream catchers back to at least the 1800s. A hoop of wood would be laced with threads to resemble a spider's web, often decorated with beads and feathers. It would be hung by a child's bed to help keep any bad dreams away.

Dream catchers became very popular in the 1970s, with the hippie culture turning dream catchers into earrings, necklaces and wall hangings.

In modern society, where stress is a part of daily life, the dreamcatcher is a way to reconnect with the past, and to look for dreams that enlighten and enrich our world.
