The Shimmering Moroccan Wedding Blanket


Even me, the purveyor of nightstands and bedrooms with solid headboards, just couldn’t resist posting this image of a luscious Moroccan wedding blanket known as a handira. 

Here’s a beautiful bit of history about the handira from Designers Call:

“They are woven on looms by hand out of sheep’s wool, cotton and linen. This thoughtful process of hand weaving infuses the blanket with blessings, and when complete, it is not only functional and beautiful, but is a symbol of fertility and good luck. It takes many hours of work to attach the hundreds of mirrored sequins to the blanket once the weaving is complete, during which the bride’s relatives teach her about her marital duties and expectations.”

And now, some handira inspiration.  A shimmering handira can become art on a wall, a throw rug, a blanket or a bedspread… Even pillows or a shawl.  I can’t get enough!handira

Graphic and exotic.



Boho divine.







And yes, how glorious, right!?

Handira: another way to shake up your home with layers of history and dazzle.  I am just dying to go to Morocco!  xoxo Dana
