This beautiful vintage wedding blanket (handira) is hand made by berber women of the Beni Ourain tribe and have become increasingly hard to source.
Typically these wonderful blankets were given to the bride to adorn her shoulders as a cape for the journey to the grooms house on their wedding day.
Each blanket can take several weeks to weave only then can each of the tiny sequins be hand stitched to complete these wonderful blankets.Made to bestow the couple with positive wishes (Baraka) for health and happiness and to ward off harmful energy. Woven using wool and cotton this heavy blanket has bushy woollen textured bands adorned with beautiful mirrored sequins.
This handira is very old so their will be signs of wear irregularities/user marks, their is some rusting on the sequins. We feel this natural patina only adds to the character and charm of these wonderful blankets.
