Moroccan Wedding Blankets, called Handira in the Berber tradition, are worn by the bride over their shoulders as garment. These are handmade by Berber craftspeople in the Middle Atlas Mountains of Morocco. The textiles of this beloved decor are part of a storied tradition for blessing newlyweds. But their romantic history is not the only thing that makes them highly desirable. The incredible texture of the handwoven cloth, with patterns of thick fringe and a bit of sparkle from mirrored sequins, can make everything better from floors to furniture.
Read on for 6 ways to use the Moroccan Wedding Blanket to upgrade your home decor.
Moroccan Style Bedspread
Moroccan wedding blankets make beautiful bedcovers, adding textural interest and a touch of glamour to this serene sleeping space. Since most wedding blankets are neutral in colour, covered with fringe and bedazzled with dozens if not hundreds of mirrored sequins.
Cozy Sofa Throw
The original intention of Handira was to use it as a wrap around your shoulders on a chilly evening. But these unique, intricately woven textiles look appealing no matter where you toss them.
On The Floor
Add unexpected texture to an empty hall by laying a wedding blanket as a floor cover. Just be aware that Moroccan wedding blankets catch crumbs like crazy and are not easy to clean, so it’s best to use one in a low-traffic area.
As a Fabric Headboard
To update a headboard easily, drape simple a wedding blanket over the center of your headboard. For the best fit, measure your bed before shopping, and look for a Handira that will cover at least two-thirds of the width of the headboard.
Textile Wall Hanging
Instead of hanging framed artwork above the bed that you can bump into or knock down, why not hang a wedding quilt? The textiles are rich and warm, making them a perfect choice for the bedroom.
