Traditionally, the blanket or plaid "handira" symbolizes marriage in the Berber tribes of the Moroccan Middle Atlas. Made from virgin wool, woven and sometimes hand-decorated with sequins and edged by Berber women, it was intended to be worn by the bride on his shoulders like a cape or a large shawl at the religious ceremony and represented symbolically the transition to his new life as a wife and a wife. The handira was later used as bedspread for the couple. His clothing took weeks as the work is thorough. Even today, it's a long-term job.
The handira has become today a staple of the bohemian and ethnic interior decoration whether it is in bed pier, blanket, bedspread, ottoman or cushion.
As part of our eco-responsible approach, these handira cushions are handmade from handira vintage: "nothing is lost, everything is transformed". Each piece being unique, they may have irregularities and variations in size.
