When you look at a dream catcher all you can think is.... that it is a beautiful object!  No matter what shape, size or style they are all stunning and they all have mystery about them. What makes them unique are the details....

In the early days, the first people to invent dream catchers were the Native American Indians. They would tie tendon threads in a web around a small circle frame and put this dream catcher in the sleeping area to protect their children from bad dreams. At that time the American Indians were using bent wood, tendon strings, natural feathers, bones and stones to create dreamcatchers. Wrapping the frame in leather was a common thing to do – so each item lasted a very long time. Native Americans then passed the dream catcher to the next generation.

Nowadays we have many choices of materials that can be used to create a dream catcher. First of all, it needs a hoop – the basis for a dreamcatcher's shape and structure. It can be made out of dried willow, plastic, metal or wood. The web inside the circle can be a natural looking ribbon or a simple string. A hint of a mystery starts with picking decorative elements. The original Native American dream catchers didn’t have many decorative features, but nowadays the beads have been woven into the web to represent different elements of life.
All types of gemstones, beads, mirror pieces, feathers, strings, lace and ribbons can be used. Just imagine, how many of them are available today! What really makes a dream catcher special is not only decorations but the uniqueness of the web. There are so many ways to make it and each one has its own meaning.

If you wish to have your own traditional design dream catcher we encourage you buy one that is made with love and care from our local villagers in Bali. With Mother Nature in mind, we make sure the item is based on a recycled plastic, cane, wood or metal hoops, using only free range feathers and natural wooden, clay , or recycled  plastic beads. This will lead to sweet dreams every night....

We’ve all been there – caught up in the middle of a fantastic dream that feels so real you think you've actually experienced it! Maybe your dream was about people you love or it was about places you wish to visit? It could also be your private fantasies or deepest fears.... No matter what it was: dreaming always gives you ideas.

You will be surprised to know that our brain is very active while sleeping. When we  dream it is working the same as it is when we are awake. We dream during the R.E.M. stage of sleep. This is the deepest stage of the sleep cycle: your eyes are moving quickly, your heart rate and breathing both become inconsistent. Usually, this sleeping
stage lasts for around 30 minutes and during this time, our body experiences dreaming activity. As you see, dreams are not very long... Probably that amazing one you had last week only lasted for a couple of minutes even if it felt like all night!

What are dreams exactly? They are images, thoughts, sounds and sensations we experience while sleeping. Good dreams make you feel inspired, happy and you enjoy every moment of an adventure. That’s the time when you fantasize without being judged or afraid of making mistakes. Your imagination has the power to create dreams and
therefore more chance to get only good ones ...with a help of a dream catcher. The Native Americans believe hanging a dream catcher around your sleeping area protects you from nightmares and helps good dreams reach you... Nightmares are caught by the net and beads, while good ones travel through the dream catcher's long strings to the feathers.

Scientists say dreaming can help you learn and develop long-term memories. A good 7.5 hrs sleep makes you more healthy, happy and productive. A person who had sweet dreams while they were sleeping has ten times the chance to have more luck the next day, just because he/she has a positive attitude!

As you know a good day always starts with good dreams... What if a dream catcher will help you to catch them?
