Hamsa or Hand of Fatima
Amulets on Moroccan Handbags

Your handbag, or purse, is one thing that you would certainly want to protect from the evil eye. One Moroccan solutions to the problem is to put a hamsa, or Hand of Fatima on the bag. These handbags are in the Moroccan crafts store Marrakech Express.

I am extremely grateful to the store for letting me photograph everything in their store.

This hamsa is odd in that it has only four fingers.

This one only appears to have three fingers. The hamsa is composed of five pieces of camel bone.
