Dream catchers are an object based of a small hoop covered with string, yarn, or horsehair mesh and decorated with feathers and beads and believed to give its owner good dreams.
There is a traditional belief that the Dreamcatchers filtering a person's dreams by trapping the bad dreams and catch the good ones. Good dreams go through the middle hole in the Dreamcatcher while the bad dreams get caught in the web where they perish at the first light of dawn. They were protecting all who slept within their fold. Each part of a dream catcher has symbolic meaning. The feathers on a Dreamcatcher symbolize air or the breath of life.
The Dreamcatchers are now made, exhibited, and sold by some New age groups and individuals.
