These moroccan wedding blankets are intensely romantic and feminine. Woven from wool, Berber brides' families weave these as part of the pre-wedding ritual in the Middle Atlas Mountains of Northern Morocco. Called Handira, these blankets are thought to be a blessing and to bring good luck to the newlyweds. So it is no wonder that Westerners are clamoring for one of their own.
I am too faint of heart to have put this on the floor and under a dining table no less, but I suspect this may have been done only for the photo.
You could use one when you entertain...
