Gift Idea: A Moroccan Wedding Blanket

March 02, 2012 | by —Michelle Ward | Homepage

Plucked from the Jemaa-el-Fna Square souk in Marrakech, this traditional Moroccan wedding blanket ($399) found its way to the states via West Elm. Buyers for the brand scooped up this one-of-a-kind blanket as part of its collaboration with Aid to Artisans, a non-profit that promotes global economic development by linking designers with artisan groups. Traditionally, wedding blankets are gifted to Berber brides-to-be by their female relatives for good luck. Think of it as the perfect wedding gift for that free-spirited, globe-trotting girlfriend who’s finally settling down. (Bonus: it can pull double-duty as a rug or tapestry.) 8366 Beverly Blvd., LA, 323-782-9672
