The Jimma headrest is a traditional artifact originating from the Jimma region of Ethiopia, located in the southwestern part of the country. Crafted from wood, these headrests exhibit a unique blend of practicality and artistic expression. They feature a curved base designed to support the head, often accompanied by an inverted cone. Beyond their artistic value, Jimma headrests were used by the people of this region for a practical purpose, providing comfort during sleep and preserving elaborate hairstyles. As both functional items and works of art, the Jimma headrest represent the heritage of the Jimma people.
