Jewelry-making has been an important tradition of the Tuareg nomads for centuries. Dressed in blue robes, they sit beneath airy tents in the desert and create breathtaking pieces of art using the same simple tools and techniques of their ancestors.
Union of Peasants for Self Development
Artisans working with the Union of Peasants for Self Development (UPAP) make traditional Tuareg leather handicrafts and silver jewelry. The Tuareg, nomadic herders of Saharan north and west Africa, now also work as traders or cultivate crops in fertile oases. Tuareg artisans of UPAP use income from craft production to supplement their subsistence farming and other livelihoods.
