ON HOLD 5' x 8' Moroccan Wedding Blanket No. 1

675.00

Moroccan Wedding Blankets (handira) are the work Berber women in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco to be used as a shawl on their wedding day. Handwoven with undyed sheep wool and adorned with hundreds of mirrored sequins, the brides female relatives gift it to the bride on her wedding day. The bride wears it as a cape for warmth and protection as she travels to her new home and begins her new life. 

We hand picked this vintage Wedding Blanket on our recent trip to Morocco. It comes from the small town of Merzouga, which is a gateway town to the Moroccan Sahara.

This unusually extra large and hard to source size serves wonderfully as a throw or wall hanging. 

Dimensions:  54" x 91"  / 4'8 x 8'7

Origin: Merzouga, Morocco

Sheep Wool, Cotton, Mirrored Sequins
