Moroccan Wedding blankets the meaning behind the beauty..
Moroccan Wedding blankets are woven by Berber woman in anticipation of a wedding.
The Bride’s female relatives take hours even weeks to attach hundreds of mirrored sequins to the blanket once the weaving is complete.
During this time the Bride’s relatives teach her all about the birds and the bees & other marital duties and expectations.
After the wedding ceremony the Bride wears the blanket tied around her neck as a cape for her trip to her new marital home, which could be a chilly ride through the Moroccan Atlas Mountains.
Once gifted to the Bride the wedding blanket serves not only for warmth and decoration in her house but also to ward off evil and to bestow fertility and good luck upon the newlyweds.
The Bride then using the blanket on her bed as a throw and it is a family heirloom and treasured possession.
