Antique Moroccan Wedding Blanket
Moroccan Wedding Blankets, or Handira, are worn by the bride as a cape after her wedding ceremony. Each unique blanket is crafted by the bride's female relatives in the weeks leading up to her wedding, and is meant to endow the couple with good fortune as well as ward off evil spirits. Handwoven using linen, cotton, wool and meticulously sewn mirrored sequins, each blanket is completely unique and reflects the whims, tastes and style of the weavers. These textiles look beautiful draped over a bed or couch or used as a wall hanging, and can enhance any space with their neutral color palette and touch of sparkle.
