SKU: A26B Category:

The Tuareg are a seminomadic people of Amazigh origin (also known as Berbers) who dwell in tents that can, along with their furnishings & possessions, be disassembled, packed & carried to their next destination. Continuing desertification of the Sahel has caused the Tuareg to move southward from Algeria into Mali, Burkina Faso & Niger as well as the northern regions of Ghana, Togo, Cote d’Ivoire & Benin.

Tuareg tents are made of arched wooden frames. Upright poles are used to build the tent, to support the tent wall mats & to hang leather bags & clothing. Each poles is carved from a single piece of wood. Intricately carved geometric patterns create a symmetrical design that is surmounted by a semi-circular panel topped with a finial which may be a solid or an openwork geometric shape.
