In the early 1970's, John Edgar known by his eclectic circle of friends as “Pejuta" a Lakota Indian word meaning "medicine", travelled across the continent of Africa with his beautiful new bride, Bonnie Jean in a 1957 Morris Cowley they had bought from an old retired policeman for about $150.00 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Inspired with the simple makings of an East African mosquito net, and with the help of his friend in Key West, Florida, Pejuta introduced to the fashion world a whimsical and romantic bed canopy, the Mombasa Magic mosquito net, that captured the attention of movie stars and the interior design world alike.
