The Tuareg people inhabit a large area, covering almost all the middle and western Sahara and the north-central Sahel. They are probably descended from the ancient Libyan people of the kingdom of the Garamantes, described by Herodotus. Tuareg are mostly nomads. For over two millennia, the Tuareg operated the trans-Saharan caravan trade connecting the great cities on the southern edge of the Sahara via five desert trade routes to the northern coast of Africa (Mediterranean).

The touareg family of Niger has been making jewelry for more than 25 generations.
They are famous for their high quality hand crafted jewelry – using 99.99% pure fine silver,
ebony and semi precious stones. The traditionally nomadic Tuareg are indigenous to the Sahara desert.
They are often called “the Blue People of the desert” due to the indigo dye they use on their garments that stains their skin.
The tuareg family collective lives in both Agadez and Niamey, Niger.
Over 50 silversmiths present their artistry. Each piece is hand hammered,
beautifully engraved with the symbolism and motifs of countless generations.
Proceeds support an entire community’s culture and craft.
