Handira: My Moroccan Decor Dream
I have seen these blankets called Handira, or Moroccan Wedding Blankets, on a few of my favorite decor blogs and wanted to share this beautiful find. Without going on too long and making this post a boring lesson in world culture, I will give you the quick synopsis. These blankets are usually sewn by women and can take up to months to complete, they are traditionally given to brides, and are said to have protective powers its owner. They typically retail anywhere from upwards of $300, but they are so lovely and appear to be worth every penny. I am seriously contemplating eating ramen for awhile to afford one of these beautiful pieces.
