SEQUINED HANDIRA POUF NO. 3

350.00

This pouf 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 pouf comes from a vintage Handira sourced from the Middle Atlas, it is cut and sewn into poufs by local women in their homes in Marrakech. No one blanket is the same, making each pouf a piece of history that is so unique to it’s own. This pouf is a unique piece to ÂME so what you see is what you get.  Poufs make a beautiful foot rest or statement piece in your home. 

Each pouf measures 24 inches across and 9 inches in height and does not come with stuffing. Zip closure.
