Handira Zaer, Morocco, 1950s circa

Woven for months by the mother and the sisters of the Berber bride, it is the equivalent of our wedding dress: it will be worn as a skirt on the wedding day.
Brought as a dowry to the groom, it will later be used as a warm blanket.
Usually of pure wool, white or cream, has one side decorated with tufts and fringes that are designed not to allow the snow to soak the mantle during the wedding journey.
