Handiras, in the local dialect, are most traditionally used as wedding blankets. They gain their name because brides often adorn themselves in intricate wedding blankets throughout their wedding. Wedding blankets woven in Ait Bouguemez are different than the standard handiras found throughout most of the country. Ait Boguemez handiras are highly unique to the area and are not found else where.
