Presentation
Go to meet the Tuaregs, a nomadic population living in the Sahara Desert. Discover how craftsmanship, poetry and music, the privileged mediums for the expression of the Tuareg style, testify to the dynamism of a society today confronted with multiple socio-political, climatic and economic upheavals.

The contemporary Tuareg society affirms its identity by playing with its image and the perception that Westerners have of it, particularly through its artisanal and artistic creations. Today, Tuareg culture continues: it knows how to integrate modernity while respecting its identity, its values ​​and its style.

Jewelery, handicrafts and poetry, Tuareg aesthetics is characterized by its sobriety, symmetry and shape geometry, the use of a limited number of colors and movement. While perpetuating these principles, the Tuaregs also emancipate themselves so easily, to play at their leisure and by feeding on the know-how and external fashions.
