The Hidden Tribe
Material: Real Leather, Vintage Berber Zayan Hanbel, Vintage Berber Jewelry.
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 entire Hanbel is dedicated to protection. The Hamsa symbol/ Camel foot print take center stage here.
The weaver filled it with diamonds ( element representing the woman’s womb and fertility), and used male elements to construct it (hatched lines/Permalki).
There is also a suggestion on the top and bottom ,where diamonds are expanding, of an ongoing pregnancy.
