Black Berber Wedding Blanket


I have been fortunate to attend a Berber wedding deep in the Atlas Mountains, and as part of the elaborate ceremony (the wedding is 3 days long), the bride (rosa) is draped with a hand-woven blanket (handira) embellished with a thousand silver sequins -- to give the married couple a thousand years of happiness. How lovely is that?

Normally white, I found this unusual black brushed cotton handira wedding blanket buried under rugs in the Marrakech souk. Doesn't it make a striking bed throw? Cotton (and sequins!).
