Meaning:  An ancient city in Jordan 

Material: Real Moroccan Leather, vintage Rare Arab 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: This Hanbel is another beautiful example of the influence of the Amazigh weavers on the Arab ones. This is an Arab Hanbel using Amazigh symbols.  The male elements are represented via chevrons, straight and hatched lines, while the female elements are represented through diamonds (women’s womb)  and superposed triangles (women’s intimate parts).
