Based on traditional designs from Moroccan wedding blankets. The white/cream coloured "Handira" is woven for weddings, decorated with metal sequins. Often women in these Berber rural towns begin creating these incredible blankets when a girl is still very young. It's a representation of rights of passage, her role in the marriage and the passing on of information from the matriarch to the younger generation.
This piece incorporates similar design aesthetic, cris- cross patterning, sequins and texture to give a unique and different approach to the traditional dreamcatcher structure
