'Morning Sunlight' Handira Wedding Blanket
A truly stunning wedding blanket full of the morning rays of sunshine from the mountains.
'Handira' are given to a bride from her family as she leaves home to get married. Traditionally, they were woven by her family or women in her village. They are densely woven from fine wool to create a soft, heavy feel and were embellished with coins and love. It was her property and she would use it as a blanket, a throw, a cape and to carry her baby on her back.
This vintage piece is stunning. Richly covered in metal discs, it is a heavy piece that will bring light to any setting you use it in.
2.2m long x 1.5m wide.
