Moroccan Hand of Fatima Bookmark
A Helping Hand
Medinas are the heartbeat of Moroccan cities and where Moroccans shop for everyday necessities; the perfect place to shop and be immersed in locals’ everyday life. Here you will find all sorts of treasures and where we first came across the delicate filigree work of this nickel silver bookmark. The symbol is the Hand of Fatima, denoting protection from evil and negativity and bringing love, joy and luck. White nickel brass is a grade of nickel silver which is a copper alloy with nickel and often zinc. The filigree designs are a lovely example of artisan work. Each tassel is made by hand in women’s workshops. A perfect gift for the readers in your life!
Fun fact: the first born girl in a Moroccan family is almost always named Fatima!
