Meaning: The man with blue  eyes 

Material: Real Leather, Vintage Berber Zayan 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: This is the new Mrirt Hanbel, very popular among the local young berber population. The weaver still uses the squins for protection from the evil eye. This blue shade is a new comer to the Atlas Mountains, fringes are used to distract the curious eye, and the two bands express a simple marriage between the female element (triangle) and the male element (hatched lines).
