11 Romantic Bedroom Ideas from Morocco

There is nothing like Moroccan wedding blankets – those sequined cream Moroccan artisanal blankets – to add an instant romantic touch to your bedroom. Moroccan wedding blankets, also called Handira blankets, are a romantic decor piece for bedrooms with an interesting background.

In Moroccan Berber tribes, these beautiful blankets – which are handmade from scratch – are worn by Berber brides on their wedding day to bring them luck and happiness in their marriage. Berber Brides wear them on their shoulders and/or head during the ceremony, and use them once home to decorate their marital bed.

The sequins on these wedding blankets are meant to reflect and ward off evil and bad energy, making them the perfect bedding accessory for a romantic bedroom.

Traditional Moroccan wedding blankets are made with wool and each sequin is sewn manually. This was the case for these Handira blankets, handmade by Berber women in the High Atlas of Morocco.
