The Dream Catcher Legend
The dream catcher comes from an Ojibwe legend. According to the legend, hanging a dream catcher near a sleeping person causes the bad dreams to be caught in the web, while the good dreams enter through the hole in the middle and drift down the feathers to the sleeping person. Then in the morning, sunlight enters through the hole to melt the bad dreams away.
The beads in a dream catcher represent bad dreams that have been caught. A dreamcatcher can be made more powerful by adding personal totems that have significance to the owner of the dream catcher, such as fur, feathers, stones, beads or claws or bits of horn from the owner's totem animals.
This dreamcatcher can be shipped internationally. However, check to be sure feathers can be imported to your country. We are not responsible for items seized by customs. Outside the US, there is an additional $90 inspection fee to ship PHEASANT FEATHERS, so if you are outside the US, you might want to order turkey, duck or chicken feathers, which don't require inspection. Feathers of any kind cannot be shipped to New Zealand, however, we can send a dreamcatcher without the feathers.
