The Moroccan wedding blanket, aka Handira, is no new trend, the muted color palette, the mix of textures, and a little bit of sparkle is a winning combination that is coveted by many for their home.
Traditionally these textiles were woven by a Berber bride’s female relatives to be used and worn in a wedding ceremony and they are now often used as blankets, wall hangings, rugs, throws, and some people have made smaller pieces into pillows like above. There is no denying their influence on that sassy little mini skirt either. Happy Handira shopping.
