Djembe Hats

Having sewn hundreds of djembe hats over the years for amateur enthusiast to professional musicians all over the world, I am closing down this retail area of Color Conscious as of January 2023.

It’s been a pleasure to meet so many drummers online and in person. To the wholesalers, avid players, individuals buying a surprise gift, or students looking for a new accessory—from Tasmania to the Netherlands, and from all over the United States—thank you all for making these years worthwhile.

Djembe Hats



“Color Conscious djembe hats are the best available. The design and fabric selection not only protects the head but also makes each hat a work of art in itself. They are beautiful!”

“If you need a djembe hat, this is the place to go. Absolutely the best place we have found for djembe hats. All you need to know is the diameter of your drum, and they will do the rest.”
