Moroccan wedding blankets, commonly known as Handira, are a tradition that captures the soul of the Berber culture. These beautiful artistic pieces are created in anticipation of a wedding by tribes-women for a new bride, presented as a gift that would keep her warm for the journey into her new marital home. They are woven on looms by hand out of sheep’s wool, cotton, and linen. This thoughtful process of hand-weaving infuses the blanket with blessings, and when complete, it is not only functional and beautiful, but is a symbol of fertility and good luck.
Each blanket can take many hours or days to in order to attach the THOUSANDS of mirrored sequins to the blanket once the weaving is complete, during which the bride’s relatives teach her about her marital duties and expectations. These symbolic pieces welcome a new bride into the next chapter of her life
