A fashionable twist on an age-old tradition, the Small Sun Dream Catcher will bring sweetness & light anytime!
Dream Catchers are often referred to as “Sacred Hoops.” They can be traced back to the Ojibwe Native American tribe where they were originally used as talismans to protect sleepers from bad dreams by holding the bad dreams in their web until morning. The strands that hang below take the good dreams and gently carry them down to the peaceful sleeper.
