i have been seeing these beautiful moroccan wedding blankets in beautiful images all around, people usually have them draped at the end of their beds, and i love the image of it hanging on the wall...plus the blanket has a story;
"They are Berber in origin and were/are woven by women weavers. Each sequin painstakingly sewn on by hand. A single blanket can take many months to produce, depending on the complexity of design and the number of sequins. The loom in Morocco is treated as a living thing and treated with extreme care. If the weaver takes care in the weaving process, then the textile she produces is believed to have talismanic power and to protect the user from the evil eye. "
Maryam of the fabulous blog My Marakkesh, sells these.
