We are pretty pumped here at MintSix to be selling these amazing Juju Hats! 

Having lusted after them for many years, we will be selling them through our online shop which will be launching in a few weeks. Woohoo!!

Bright yellow juju


We are super excited just quietly a little bit stoked about being this country's first juju hat stockist! Be one of the first owners of a Juju hat in New Zealand and add some serious cool factor to your wall!


Love pretty much everything about this room!

Pink and Green is one of my favourite colour combos and I'm loving
 this pink juju on the green wall.

Popular spots in the home for a Juju Hat are often above a fireplace or mantel
Place one over your bed to give your bedroom a bit of wow factor

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.

When not in use, the headdress can be folded into a basket shape, taking up very little space, with the feathers neatly protected inside. 

Jet Black
The headdress comes in a wide range of rich colors, either monochrome or a combination of colors, depending on the inspiration of the craftsman.

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


Small size : 50 cm (19.7 inches) diameter

Standard size : 80 cm (31.5 inches) diameter
