Warming Trend: Vintage Moroccan Wedding Blankets

Jul 11, 2011

Moroccan wedding blankets, or handira, are a traditional artform made by the female relatives of a new bride before her big day. They have been popping up in Western interiors due to their geometric texture and soft sparkle, which add a little bit of global interest to a room scene.

Traditionally, a Moroccan bride would be wrapped in a blanket after her wedding to make the trip to her new home. Other than for that purpose, the textiles are most frequently used as bedding, but in the hot summer months they could make sense as wallhangings or even rugs (in a clean, dry place!).
