Moroccan Wedding Blanket Pillow PAIR
Moroccan Wedding Blanket Pillows
Moroccan wedding blankets, also known as Handira, are very significant in Berber culture. The female relatives of the bride spend countless hours of love and dedication hand weaving a blanket to give to their loved one on the day of her wedding. These blankets are woven in the Middle Atlas Mountains out of sheep's wool, linen and cotton and include intricate sequin detailing. After the wedding ceremony, the bride wears her blanket around her neck, almost like a cape, as she makes her way home with her new husband. Every textile has a story and we are so happy to share these pillows with you as a little token of a story that is so special to Morocco.
*Pillows come unstuffed
Size: 20x20in, 18x18in
We recommend using inserts one size larger for a fully stuffed feel. For the 20x20in pillow we recommend an insert of 21x21in. You can also use any kind of stuffing--we recommend recycled Poly-Fil.
There are no zippers on these pillows. There is an opening of about 5 inches on the top seam to stuff the cushions. We recommend a quick sew to close it up.
Dry Clean or Spot Clean Only
Due to the nature of vintage kilim pieces, there may be slight wear from time but this is what gives them such a striking look. No two patterns will ever be the same.
