Gorgeous Moroccan wedding blanket pillow cover, refashioned from, by an El Ramla Hamra selected vintage wedding blanket
The story behind the Moroccan wedding blanket also called ''handira'' is beautiful. According to old Moroccan Berber tradition from the Middle Atlas Mountains, the handira was worn by the bride on her wedding day, on the way to the house of her husband. The handira was completely handmade with much love and prayers by female relatives of the bride. The rug was hand spun and hunderds and thousands of sequins were being put by hand onto the blanket. The handira stood for happiness, fertility and protection against evil.
Vintage Moroccan wedding blankets are very popular but difficult to obtain in good condition. The white blankets are even more rare.
