White and Kilim Moroccan Wedding Blanket
This stunning White and Kilim Wedding Blanket is hand-woven of natural sheep's wool and cotton, decorated with strips of vintage kilim fabric and embellished with silver sequins and wool fringe. The traditional Moroccan handira can take several weeks to create, and is traditionally worn by the bride as a cape on her wedding day and then used as a bedcover after the ceremony. These beautiful blankets with rich tradition look fabulous as a bedcover, an oversized throw over the sofa, or used as a rug or wall hanging. Measures 290cm by 180cm. Dry clean.
