The Tuareg are fiercely independent nomadic people. On the move with
their herds and camels over vast areas of the southern Sahara, they create
an impressive world of traditional, functional objects from leather which
is their primary material due to its durability, lightness and flexibility.
Masters of geometric abstract design, the Tuareg fashion objects ranging
from saddlebags to cushions to tent mats that are painted and molded, embroidered,
engraved and fringed.
