The Hidden Tribe
Meaning: dimunitive of Yugerten means bigger than them.
Material: Real Moroccan leather, vintage berber Mrabetya Mrirt Hanbel, Vintage Berber Jewelry.
Description: Hanbel is made through a flat-weave process whereby the weaver threads the weft back and forth through the wrap until the rug or pillow is finished.
Symbology: Vertical black and purple lines are symbols of the male element, behind oblique lines made of diamonds (which is a female element symbol of fertility and woman’s womb) surrounded by hatched lines (male symbol for protection and virility).
This Hanbel suggests a wish from the weaver for procreation, stability, and protection.
We added the Amazigh sign that comes from the X symbol (Female element representing the way berber women used to deliver: open arms over a wire and open legs) as a response to the weaver’s wishes.
