The Hidden Tribe
Meaning: Father of Youssef Ben Tachfeen Founder of Marrakech.
Material: Real Moroccan leather, Vintage Berber Hanbel, sequins.
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 special part about this Hanbel is the fact that the weaver hand knotted the diamond elements (symbol of the women’s fertility and womb) and surrounded them with flat weaved protective elements to the right, left, and top. For the bottom she chose the X element (a representation of how Amazigh women used to give birth).
