Moroccan Wedding Blankets are an ancient Berber tradition for brides of the Atlas Mountains to wear these beautiful blankets after their wedding ceremony and still remains part of the culture for traditional tribes of the Atlas Mountains. Several weeks and even months before the celebration, females usually from the brides family weave this very special blanket for the bride using hand spun Lambs wool and a hand loom. It’s believed during the weaving process blessings from god and the exceptional prayer and care taken is infused into the blankets giving them an extraordinary power to bring good fortune and fertility to the couple whilst deflecting the evil eye. The loomed blanket is then intricately decorated with hundreds of shiny mirrored sequins that are precisely sewn on by hand in a process that could take weeks to complete. After the wedding ceremony the blanket is worn as a cape and secured with extravagant ties to keep the bride warm as she travels by mule from her home to her new husbands family home where she will now live.
