Handira Wedding Blanket
This beautiful vintage wedding blanket (handira) is hand made by berber women of the Beni Ourain tribe. Traditionally these wonderful blankets were given to the bride to adhorn her shoulders as a cape for the journey to the grooms house on the 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.
These blankets look stunning over a bed, across a sofa, or even as a wall hanging.
We also have some beautiful vintage handira cushions too.
This handira is vintage so their may be some irregularities which we feel we only adds to the character and charm of these wonderful blankets.
