Meaning: dimunitive of Yugerten  means bigger than them.

Material: Real Moroccan leather, vintage berber Mrabetya Mrirt 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: Vertical black and purple lines are symbols of the male element, behind oblique lines made of diamonds (which is a female element symbol of fertility and woman’s womb) surrounded by hatched lines (male symbol for protection and virility). 

This Hanbel suggests a wish from the weaver for procreation, stability, and protection.

We added the Amazigh sign that comes from the X symbol (Female element  representing the way berber women used to deliver: open arms over a wire and open legs) as a response to the weaver’s wishes.
