The hamsa/khamsa is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa. The khamsa is often incorporated in jewelry and wall hangings, as a defense against the evil eye. The evil eye is a look that is believed by many cultures to be able to cause injury or bad luck for the person at whom it is directed for reasons of envy or dislike.
Another Arabic name for the hamsa (or khamsa) is the hand of Fatima, commemorating Fatima Zahra, the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad. Hamsa hands often contain an eye symbol. Depictions of the hand, the eye, or the number five in Arabic (and Berber) tradition is related to warding off the evil eye, as exemplified in the saying khamsa fi ainek "five [fingers in your eye".
The khamsa is the most popular of the different amulets to ward off the evil eye in Egypt. The Hand (Khamsa) has long represented blessings, power and strength and is thus seen as potent in deflecting the evil eye.
HAMSA requires a 5x7 or larger hoop and can be stitched with or without the postcard option.
These are high quality, affordable designs. All of my designs are manually punched by me. I take great care to eliminate all the jumps that are possible. Due to the nature of some of the designs, some jumps are necessary in order to maintain the right look for the design. Always test stitch designs on a like fabric before putting them on your final project.
