arabian nights

The traditional Moroccan wedding blanket, or handira, is created in Morocaan Berber villages by the family of the bride, contain hand sewn sequins, and are made of wool. Brides would then wear the blanket as a cape to keep warm on the journey to their husband’s household. Today, handiras are used in decor (Jonathan Adler uses them all the time!), and the sparkle adds just enough glitz to luxurious interiors. Purchase yours here!

And wondering how that stunning calligraphy wedding invitation was made…?

*in case you’re wondering what it says, it is the bridal couple’s names: Ayat and Hazem
