The Dream Catcher originated with the Ojibwes, a Native American tribe in Canada and the midwestern part of the U.S. It is called the Irish Dream Catcher here because of the Trinity Knot being the charm. As a Native American legend is told, by hanging a dream catcher over your sleeping area the bad dreams will be deterred by the beads and the feathers will attract the good dreams and let them pass through. A lovely piece of Native American and Irish culture. It is 24″ tall and 12″ wide. A great addition to your bedroom.
