About Tuareg Artistry

Leather, a beloved and versatile material, is extensively used by the Tuareg community to craft various forms of African art, including jewelry, ornate leather items, metal saddle accessories, and exquisitely designed swords. As exporters and retailers of African art, we are privileged to share this rich heritage with you.

Historical Context

The term 'Tuareg' encompasses a range of diverse groups bound together by a shared language and history. Historically, Tuareg camel caravans dominated the trans-Saharan trade routes until the introduction of European railways and vehicular transport in the mid-20th century. The Tuareg journey traces back to northern Africa, documented by the ancient historian, Herodotus. Over millennia, many migrated south, drawn by the allure of a more prosperous southern land and driven by northern adversities. Presently, numerous Tuaregs reside in cities neighboring the Sahara, erstwhile prominent trade epicenters of western Africa. While many have adopted Islam, their identity remains distinct from the Arabic culture.
