Moroccan Wedding Blankets

For all those who think that the "pouf" is the hottest thing to come from the souk, make way for the the handira, otherwise known as a Moroccan Wedding Blanket. These beautiful blankets are hand-woven by a bride's female relatives in honor of her marriage using natural materials such as sheep's wool, linen and cotton. Once woven each blanket is further adorned with hundreds of mirrored sequins. Lately these blankets have been appearing all over the place in interior spaces from glamourous bed coverings to glitzy wall hangings. 

I know you want one are some sources I rounded up for vintage handiras:
