REASONS TO VISIT

Handicraft

The Handicraft is relatively developed and diversified thanks to the manufacture of jewelry (silver and wood), decorated leather products, wool carpets, wood carvings and traditional musical instruments.

In traditional handicrafts, let you be seduced by gold, silver and ebony jewelry. Also enjoy decorated leathers, wool carpets and wood carvings. More unusual, think of traditional musical instruments used by griots. On the clothing side, let make up your boubous wardrobe, the traditional menswear. There is something for all tastes and all prices, colors and various ornaments. The seroual, baggy trousers, is very comfortable to wear during hot weather.

Learn to tie a “chèche” suitably. This large piece of fabric serves as a turban and is very useful in the desert.
