  • Vintage Banjara Rabari Wool Shawl And Throw. Mirror work and Embroidered

    Aadya Bazaar

    Vintage Banjara Rabari Wool Shawl And Throw. Mirror work and Embroidered

    $169.99

    Each of these Rabari shawls has been made with such love and attention. These are from a tribe in Gujarat, India where the most exuberant and beautiful embroidery comes from.

    The shawls are 100% wool apart from the decoration. Some of the older decoration is wool. These are often adorned in layers generation to generation, I imagine. They are toasty warm and truly fetching.

    The wool is dyed once and then tie dyed again to make the all over design. It is unusual in that it has a few different colors of tie dye towards the center and not just the traditional red and white.

    This item is probably 30 or 40 years old. It is in excellent condition. It is unusual in that it is a dark brownish red color while most are black or dark brown.

    These are great shawls for cool weather or striking as a wall hanging or throw.

    measures 35 "X 83"

  • Vintage Wool & Cotton Sequined Moroccan Wedding Blanket Handira

    Aadya Bazaar

    Vintage Wool & Cotton Sequined Moroccan Wedding Blanket Handira

    $232.99

    A wonderful composition of line and texture. The most beautiful understated yet fanciful of practical warmies!! These are called Handiras or Moroccan wedding blankets. They are woven as a dowry for brides. This one is made of handspun wool and cotton with lots of large wonderful metal sequins. The handira makes a lovely jingle when handled.

    This piece is soft and supple. These are great as blankets, throws, wall hangings, or thrown over a headboard.

    This one is in very good vintage condition. Please note the small hole (see last photo)

    size is 52”x82”

    A Handira or Tamizart is a throw used for warmth and special events. The white/cream coloured Handira is woven for weddings, often decorated with countless metal sequins (mouzouns in Arabic). I’ve been told that a mother begins to weave a wedding blanket when her daughter is still very young. The girl grows up getting familiar with her wedding blanket as part of her dowry and her duties as a married woman.

    Moroccan wedding blankets are woven in natural undyed wool and cotton, often decorated with woven pattern bands of very pretty and colourful talismanic symbols. The numerous sequins give the Handira the finishing touch but are not solemnly esthetical. They are considered to ware of the evil eye and to protect. They also reflect the sun light during the day and the glow of fire at night.

    A bride wears her Tamizart as part of her dowry when she is carried to the house of the groom. According to old tradition it is highly unusual that the bride walks, she is carried on the back of a mule to her new home. During this journey a small procession of family and friends of the bride sing about her dowry and the gifts that she brings for her new family.
