Moroccan weavers use a multitude of designs. Sometimes they are of things from everyday life, such as a car or an animal. More often, they are geometric shapes -- stars, diamonds or zigzags. Weavers are very clever and imaginative in using patterns to decorate their work.
Some people, life forms and geological formations possess baraka, a blessing from God. Baraka can be transferred to symbols and designs that have protective power to ward off the "evil eye." The "evil eye" is a stare or glance that can bring illness or misfortune to individuals.
