The Artisan Hand of Fatima T-Shirt by Disorder is a unique, one off hand painted garment . The inspiration for the Hand of Fatima T-Shirt is from the Hand of Fatima symbol. We can trace the origins of this ancient symbol, long into our history. It is a symbol that predates Islam, Christianity and Judaism. Therefore, it doesn’t belong to any one group exclusively, it belongs to us all. I see this t-shirt as a powerful symbol of unity and protection for all against the evil eye. The Artisan Hand of Fatima T-Shirt is made from sustainably sourced organic cotton. Each t-shirt is hand painted by Disorders our artist after you have ordered it. This helps to minimize clothing waste and ensures you receive an exclusive, authentic slow fashion garment. This may take a little longer, so give us about 10 days to complete the t-shirt, but definitely worth the wait.
The history of the hand symbol is a long and fascinating one. Its use as a sign to protect people from the evil eye, predates Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Typically, the hand symbol is represented by the open right hand, an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history. The Hand symbol is believed to provide defense against the evil eye. In Islam, it is also known as the hand of Fatima, so named to commemorate Muhammad’s daughter Fatima Zahra (c. 605 or 615 – 633). In addition, the Levantine Christians call it the hand of Mary, for the Virgin Mary. Jews refer to it as the hand of Miriam in remembrance of the biblical Miriam, sister of Moses and Aaron.
To summarize, we can trace the origins of this ancient symbol, long into our history. Therefore, it doesn’t belong to any one group exclusively, it belong to us all. I see the Evil Eye hand painted t shirt as a powerful symbol of unity and protection for all against the evil eye.
