The blanket is antique (beware, they also sell new ones, so make sure you ask for an antique one), the place we went had many with different patterns. It was one of the carpets stores in the souk. Make sure you bargain, a lot, I'm happy with what we paid but I'm sure someone with better haggling skills could get an even better price so don't be shy.
I'm probably going to use it as a bedding piece like most people do, but I also like the idea of hanging it on the wall.
Handira blankets, or also called wedding blankets are hand woven usually in wool and covered in sequins and metallic tokens. They are hand made by the Berber women in the High Atlas Mountain region in Morocco. These blankets are woven by the bride's family and are/were worn during the ceremony as a cape, there is a bit more historic in this article in Apartment Therapy.
