VINTAGE MOROCCAN HANDIRA BLANKET
Beautiful Vintage Moroccan Handira
Moroccan Handiras or Berber wedding blankets as they are also known are traditionally hand woven by the bride’s female relatives and are usually made from sheep wool, cotton and linen. It can take many hours, even weeks of work to attach those hundreds of mirrored sequins.
After the wedding ceremony, the bride wears the blanket tied around her neck as a kind of cape to her marital home.
As with any vintage item it is to be expected that there will be signs of its age, we have thoroughly inspected the item and have seen that there has been a repair and couple of minor which we have photographed, and a few minor however it doesn't detract from the beauty of this piece.
