Details

Meaning: The name of an amazing waterman who ranged war against several tribes in a quest of justice and became a war hero. 

Material: Real Moroccan red suede Leather, vintage wool Ben Mguild Hanbel.

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: The weaver in this one celebrates with colors the expansion of her womb as suggested by the expansion of the diamonds toward the sides. The diamond is a symbol for the woman’s womb and fertility.

Surrounding every single female form we can see the male forms: ladders and hatched lines. They symbolize protection and virility.
