Moroccan Wedding Blanket Pillow in Black and White

Overview:

We love the look and feel of the Moroccan handira, also known as the wedding blanket. In the old days these blankets were worn as capes on wedding days. Now they're most often sold as two-sided blankets that adorn our homes with their unique texture and faded, vintage charm. With these pillows, we were inspired by the wedding blankets and asked the artisans we work with to riff on the traditional design. What resulted is a multidimensional pillow that is plush to the touch and pleasing to the eye. These pillows come in black and white, but if you're looking for color in your life, check out our more colorful Handira pillows.

All pillows are equipped with invisible zipper, which makes it easy to remove the pillow insert and clean the pillow case.

  • >>  Front of pillow: 100% handwoven wool
  • >>  Back of pillow: Soft black velour-like material

We've been working with Moroccan artisans since 2008

Kantara, meaning "bridge" in Arabic, is deeply committed to fair and ethical trade.

Since 2008, we have worked directly with the same weaving cooperatives in rural Morocco. Thanks to our longstanding relationship with these highly skilled Moroccan artisans, we are able to curate and design authentic rugs and pillows that both preserve the ancient weaving traditions and add a modern touch.

This is why we love Moroccan rugs

Moroccan rugs are heirloom pieces that age well and are embedded with the living histories of the weavers, the symbols of their tribal regions, and the markings of both traditional and modern rug designs.

Each tribal region in Morocco boasts its own weaving style- from modern black and white Beni Ourain rugs in the north, to the colorful and abstract Azilal high pile rugs, to the low pile rugs of the southern Ait Ouaouzguite region. While the process of weaving is the same throughout Morocco, the colors, textures, and patterns vary greatly from one region to the next.

The artisans we work with are skilled at creating hand-knotted, thicker pile rugs, as well as weaving geometric Moroccan kilims, boucherouite rag rugs, and double-sided handira wedding blankets. The results of this are colorful, eclectic, and bohemian rugs that are perfect for any home — from throw rugs to hallway runners to area living room rugs.

About our collection of custom, handwoven, and vintage Moroccan rugs

We carry a wide variety of rugs. There are rugs from popular design styles such as Beni Ouarain, boucherouite, and Azilal. We also curate bold and eclectic Moroccan rugs that seemingly have no rhyme or reason. These fully functional art pieces come together to form a collection that is a healthy balance of traditional Moroccan rugs and unique, one-of-a-kind finds.

All of our rugs are washed by professional cleaners before being shipped to Kantara's Los Angeles showroom.
