moroccan wedding balnkets

We don't normally post about our personal lives, but since wedding bells rang a couple weeks- I have to share an obsession: Moroccan Wedding Blankets.

Traditional handmade Moroccan wedding blankets, Handiras, are given to Moroccan brides on their wedding day. It´s role is both ceremonial as well as practical; the rug is a gift of good luck and blessings for the bride but also used to wrap around her on her way to her new home. The rugs are traditional Berber rugs, usually made with sheep´s wool and decorated with sequins.
