Handira are hand woven blankets made from 100% wool and decorated with sequins. The Wedding blankets are made by Berber women and are traditionally used as a cape during wedding ceremonies (See photo below). Post wedding Handira look beautiful as blankets on the bed, as rugs or even as wall hangings.
I am so, so impressed I just had to share....I got mine from Beyond Marrakech, a blog and shop owned by the lovely Danielle, who also owns a beautiful Guest house Dar Zohra in the Atlas Mountains.
Living in Morocco, Danielle sources these beautiful Handira locally and has the most beautiful wide range of these beautiful blankets. If like me you are messy the blankets also come in colour.
What do you guys think?
