Meaning: The Gazelle fawn

Material: Real Leather, Vintage Berber Zayan Hanbel, Squins.

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: There are two outspoken female signs in this Hanbel: the diamonds (female fertility/womb) and the Hamsa or the camel foot imprint (Protective sign, used to turn away the evil eye). 

The only male elements are the straight lines surrounding both female symbols. The weaver added an extra element for protection from the evil eye: Sequins.
