Decor Inspiration: Moroccan Wedding Blanket

I love the story behind the Moroccan Wedding Blanket. They are traditionally made by the bride’s family in anticipation of the wedding day. They symbolize fertility and good luck. They take hours and hours to hand embroider with sequins — during the hours of workmanship the bride gets a lesson from her relatives on marriage. What a beautiful result! Find a wedding blanket to accent your room here, here, herehere or here.

    Though the blankets are traditionally crafted of cream wool, they are sometimes seen in solid red, black or blue. No matter the color, the trademarks of a Moroccan wedding blanket are oodles and oodles of bushy fringe and those playful sequins. Using these gorgeous blankets as bedspreads has become quite fashionable in chic guesthouses throughout Morocco and Westerners have begun to carry the tradition home to the states, where they often command $1,000 or more. Moroccan wedding blankets have recently made appearances in several high-end design magazines and enjoyed many notable blog mentions in a veritable who’s who of the design world, fueling their popularity. They’ve even found a home in the swank suites of the Parker Palm Springs . This is your chance to own a beautiful showpiece and a piece of authentic Moroccan culture. Enjoy as a bed spread, wall hanging and carpet or drape over a couch to add instant glamour…each is a true work of art and no two are ever precisely alike.
