Here is the meaning of the main symbols of the Rug Kilim Mellassine 60x200 cm :


Note
: Originally, the symbolism of Berber signs refers mainly to life, the fertility of the couple and the fertility of the land. Over the centuries, the meanings have often evolved or overlapped.

Red

The colour red has a prophylactic character in ancient Berber traditions: its strength and brilliance protect against accidents and diseases; it is the universal vector of the principle of life.

The rhombus

The diamond is the Berber carpet pattern par excellence. It appears on almost all Berber carpets in the Maghreb, whether in Tunisia, Algeria or Morocco.

Meaning 1: The diamond is an ancient Berber feminine symbol that represents woman and her beauty. It represents the womb of life, the uterus or the woman's body as a whole.

Meaning 2: The eye or the mirror: what reflects or allows one to see.The representation of the eye is in the Berber culture a way of countering the evil eye. In the same way, the mirror reflects the evil eye against itself.

The fish

In Tunisia, the fish is an ancestral symbol that dates back to the Phoenician period of Carthage. It is represented on many objects of Tunisian craftsmanship, particularly on kilim carpets.

The fish is considered in Tunisia as a lucky charm bringing luck and abundance. It is also a protective sign against the evil eye. The Tunisian expression "the fish on you" (hoot aalik) is used in the sense of "knocking on wood".
