The Konso headrest originates from the Konso people of southern Ethiopia. Crafted from wood, these headrests are characterized by their carvings and unique shapes. Unlike typical headrests that have a curved base, Konso headrests often feature a flat, rectangular base with tall, slender supports. Functionally, the headrests are used to support the head while sleeping, protecting elaborate hairstyles and ensuring comfort. Beyond their practical function, Konso headrests hold significant symbolic value, reflecting the artistic skill and identity of the Konso people.
