Handira | Moroccan Weddingblanket
A one of a kind Moroccan wedding blanket. Vintage wedding blankets are more and more difficult to find in good condition, especially the white ones. They are almost becoming collector's items. We have taken a lot of time to search and build up an collection.Â We are therefore proud to present our handira collection.
The Moroccan wedding blanketÂ is completely handmade with much love and prayers by female relatives of the bride. The un-dyed Moroccan blanket is hand spun and sequins were being put by hand onto the blanket. The handira stood for happiness, fertility and protection against evil.
According to old Moroccan Berber tradition the handira was worn by the bride draped over her schoulders on her wedding day, on the way to the house of her husband.
