Tuareg culture is rich in history and tradition.  A semi-nomadic Berber people, the Tuareg inhabit a large area of the middle and western Sahara and travel throughout Algeria, Mali, Niger and as far as Libya, Morocco, Tunisia and Nigeria.

In fact, Tuareg people don’t perceive the Sahara as one desert, but as many.  They call the Sahara “Tinariwen” which means “the deserts”.  The Tuareg language is spoken by more than 1 million people.

Extraordinary silversmiths, the Tuareg produce some of the most unique silver jewelry  in the world.
