The Tuareg originate from Mali, Algeria and Libya, but after travelling the Sahara Desert, a small group settled in the southern Moroccan Zagora province. Silver Sahara sources all our Tuareg items directly from descendants of the original settlers, ensuring that fair prices are paid. 

This item is more than 20 years old and comes directly from the Tuareg family who made it. Very eye-catching and unique.
