HEAD ADORNMENTS

Ceremonies, traditions and rituals play an important role in Indonesian culture, often interwoven in performing arts, dance and music. Within the performing arts, their ethnic diversity and traditions from various parts of the Indonesian archipelago are reflected. Ceremonial dresses, costumes and adornments have various meanings. They are the expression of cultural values and symbols of identity or social status. 

The head adornments are used as part of a dancer's costume or at cultural ceremonies, such as weddings, funerals or other special occasions. Each region in Indonesia identifies their own type of head adornments resulting in a wide array of aesthetic pieces throughout the country. 

The head adornment is considered one of the most sacred parts of the dancer’s costume, and is kept in a high place at home and blessed with holy water before being used in a performance. 

Each piece within our head adornment collection is one-of-a kind, age-old and made by hand.
