Created by women of Northern Morocco, specifically the Berber women of the Atlas Mountains, the handcrafted textiles are woven in preparation for a wedding. Over weeks of work, the female relatives of the bride all work together to craft this piece- using the time to educate the bride of critical life lessons to start her new chapter as a wife. The vintage blankets are woven from sheep's wool, cotton and linen. Once gifted to the bride, the wedding blanket serves not only as warmth and decoration in her home, but also to ward off evil and to bestow fertility and good luck upon the newlywed couple.
Our stunning vintage Moroccan wedding blankets are hand crafted, as such they have the 'human', sometimes 'imperfect' qualities of the hands that made them. Not machine-made, each one is unique.
As they are vintage they may have some minor irregularities and signs of use and age, like small repaired and unrepaired holes, fading, spots and stains. We think these signs give the item that beautiful vintage character. ** please contact us for individual images of available blankets.
Style Tip: The versatility of the Moroccan wedding blanket means it can be used as a wall hanging, rug, bed covering, folded at the base of a bed or draped over a piece of furniture to inject a sense of global style into any space.
