The Moroccan wedding blankets are known as a Handira.  They are hand-loomed woven with natural wool and cotton.  Decorated with sequins, these beautiful blankets carry with them an equally beautiful tradition. Woven by tribal-women these lavish blankets were given to a new bride as a gift to keep her warm for the journey to her marital home.  The Handira can be a perfect accent piece for home décor or a cherished and unique wedding gift.
