Moroccan Pillow Made from a Vintage Wedding Blanket, Berber Handira with Sequins

About

Gorgeous Moroccan wedding blanket pillow cover, refashioned from, by an El Ramla Hamra selected vintage wedding blanket The story behind the Moroccan wedding blanket also called ''handira'' is beautiful. According to old Moroccan Berber tradition from the Middle Atlas Mountains, the handira was worn by the bride on her wedding day, on the way to the house of her husband. The handira was completely handmade with much love and prayers by female relatives of the bride. The rug was hand spun and hunderds and thousands of sequins were being put by hand onto the blanket. The handira stood for happiness, fertility and protection against evil. Vintage Moroccan wedding blankets are very popular but difficult to obtain in good condition. The white blankets are even more rare. Adding an ultra bohemian chic vibe to your interior will be easy with these amazing and unique handira cushions. Also gorgeous in a Scandinavian style space. Just for that ethnic glamour touch. Y Pillows are stuffed and hand stitched at one site. Due these cushions are made from vintage wedding blankets, they may have some minor irregularities and signs of use and age, like small repaired and unrepaired holes, fading, spots and stains. We think that these signs give the item that beautiful vintage character.
