What it is: Blankets are an important part of Moroccan culture, due to the desert climate. Handwoven textiles are woven on home looms and given as gifts to mark special occasions and milestones.
What it does: Made with hand dyed, natural cotton that softens with age and care, and oversize pompoms that dance when worn, these blankets add texture and personality when strewn across a bed or sofa. Flecks of metallic fiber that run through the fabric catch the light and twinkle.
Backstory: Most exquisitely adorned of all Moroccan blankets is the handira, or wedding blanket which can be detailed with sequins, tassels, braids and pompoms. This Verve Culture blanket is a versatile but a simple version.
Stats: 78"x58" Like a long friendship, the natural cotton in our Moroccan blankets arrives with a bit of coarseness to them, but the fibers relax as the blankets are lived in and loved in. Dry clean only.
