Meaning: lioness 

Material: Real Moroccan leather, Vintage 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: The Zigzag lines start at the bottom and flow toward the top of the Hanbel, giving a sense of infinity. 

Made of male elements (hatched and straight lines) and filled with female elements (diamonds), this piece is intended to portray a harmonious female-male union with a wish for  continuity and a happily ever-after. 

Sequins were added to protect from the evil eye (they are tiny mirrors that reflect negative energies away from the owner).
