Extra long, hand-dyed indigo blue Tuareg scarves are the hallmark of the Tuareg tribes of the Sahara, known as the "Blue Men of the desert".
These Tuareg scarves are made of very light "hayati" (cotton) fabric, are hand dyed to show a darker color on each end. They are often worn in multi-layers to protect against sun and sand as the Tuareg people travel the Sahara desert.
For women and men. Very soft hand woven cotton that gets softer with every wash. The very long Tuareg scarf is worn on the head and around the neck. Also wonderful over the shoulders for warmth or as a light cover-up.
