Two of our favorite colors to create Indian Headdress with are without any doubt blue and green. However we are even more in love with the colors that arise when both are mixed together: turquoise and aqua. These two are literally our all time favorites that we color our feathers with which are used to create our Native American headdresses. You can find them all put together at one simple click right here.
Talking about colors, we want to write a bit about the importance and meaning of colors for the indigenous Indians - not only when it comes to Indian Headdresses.
Many of the images that show native Americans makes us realize the war paint they were using on their own body but also to decorate their horses. However color was not only used during battle to represent war symbols or to just impress their enemies; they were also used for rituals and dances.
Since we´re so in love with the bluish and green shades we want to share which symbol they had for the native Americans:
Blue represented wisdom and confidence. Green symbolized endurance. This color is also associated with harmony and was suppose to have a healing power.
