Here is the meaning of the main symbols of the Rug Kilim Bou Arada 65x220 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 5-branch double comb

Berber carpets are woven entirely by hand without shuttle or spindle. The only accessory used by the craftswomen is the weaving comb which is used to pack the wool of the carpet. It is therefore a strong symbol associated with creativity and fecundity. It is often represented on Tunisian carpets, especially on woven carpets such as kilims and margoums.

On this carpet, the combs have 5 branches. They refer to the hand of Fatma (khomsa) and its five fingers, present on many tunisian handicrafts. The khomsa is an ancestral symbol of Berber beliefs used as an amulet against the evil eye symbolizing protection, power and strength.

The weaving combs of this carpet are also doubled, which refers to the tree of life and its roots symbolising life, knowledge and wealth.
