handira, moroccan wedding blanket 100/200


superb moroccan wedding blanket, sequins handira


the wedding blanket is traditionally part of the Moroccan bride’s trousseau. In the Atlas, the blanket is often white embroidered with sequins. Very tight hand weaving of a soft fine ecru cotton and yarn, it makes a beautiful rug, a wall hanging or a bed cover as much as a plaid on a modern sofa.
