Dream catchers have been apart of Native American Indian culture for centuries. Many Native tribe would fashion a woven web or use an old net or snare as the center of the catcher. They would the decorate the webbed center with sacred items such as feathers, hydes and beads. The belief is said these sacred items would attract good spirits and the web would "Catch" bad spirits preventing them from effecting you both in your sleep and beyond. These Dream Catchers are made in the tradition of the originals.
