The Whitney Wedding Blanket

The Whitney Wedding Blanket


If you are searching for only the most entrancing and ornate pieces for your home, search no further. This elegant Wedding Blanket, called a "Handira" in Morocco, features genuine sequin (which seem more like jewels), impeccable attention to detail, a soft and peaceful ivory hue, and beautifully tasteful shag throughout. On the inside of the blanket you will find stripes of ornately printed fabric, meaning no matter how you look at it, this piece is mesmerizing.

Still attached to the blanket are the fabric ties which helped it to serve its original purpose. On her wedding day, a Moroccan bride would be cloaked in this Handira by her groom, lending the Wedding Blanket its special name. After the ceremony, the blanket would be hung above the newlyweds marriage bed. The sequin let out a beautiful chiming whenever they are jostled, which would notify the bride should the groom leave the room. 

This blanket will keep you warm, not just physically, but also emotionally with the knowledge of its romantic purpose and origin as well as spiritually as it whispers to you the secrets of love on a global scale.
