The Hidden Tribe
Meaning: The Rose
Material: Real natural Moroccan leather, vintage wool Berber Zammour 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 vintage Hanbel displays three feminine columns and four masculine rows. The latter is made of horizontal and vertical lines while the feminine ones are more elaborate. The two columns to the sides are made of the feminine diamond shape (fertility/woman’s womb) while the middle column is intended to be protective with its Hamsa a.k.a camel foot imprint. The Diamond columns start with the masculine hatched barres as a subtile hint to the female-male union.
