Creamy Berber Wedding Blanket

This Berber Wedding Blanket is a Women’s handmade shawl or cape known as Handira in the tribes of Zemmour and Atlas mountains. Handira Blanket is a wool hand woven piece of art necessary on all berber weddings.

Moroccan Wedding blankets such as this white berber blanket are woven in anticipation of a wedding by the bride’s female relatives. It can take many hours — even weeks — of work to attach those hundreds of mirrored sequins once the weaving is complete.

it is thought that during this collaborative task, the bride’s relatives teach her all about the birds and the bees, among other marital duties and expectations. After the wedding ceremony, the bride wears the blanket tied around her neck as a kind of cape. It might be associated with her trip to her new marital home, which could be a chilly ride.

Besides It can also be used as an original piece of textile bedding decor, floor decor or as table linen.
