SEQUINED HANDIRA CUSHION COVER

100.00

This cushion cover is made out of Handira which is more commonly known as a Moroccan Wedding Blanket. The Handira is woven by hand out of cotton, linen and sheep’s wool by Berber bride-to-be and her female relatives while teaching her what it means to be a wife. It takes hours and even weeks, to attach each mirrored sequin once the blanket itself is woven. The bride traditionally wears the blanket after the wedding ceremony as a cape. For Berbers, everything they do comes with a purpose. The hand weaving process is thought to endow the textile with blessings. It is meant to ward off evil, bestow fertility and good luck to the newlyweds. Your cushion cover comes from a vintage Handira sourced from the Middle Atlas, it is cut and sewn into cushion covers by local women in their homes in Marrakech. No one blanket is the same, making each cushion a piece of history that is so unique to it’s own. These cushions make excellent statement pieces in your home. Each blanket yields only a limited number of unique cushions so you are guaranteed something very special. 

Each cushion cover is sold individually and does not come with stuffing. They measure approximately 23.5" inches across and 12.5 inches in height. Zip closure.
