Traditional Tuareg Leather

You won't find anything like this at Macy's! Made the way they have for centuries, Tuareg women are often skilled artisans in goat leather dyed with indigo and other local, naturally sources dyes glowing in traditional colors of black, turquoise, ochre and magenta. The artisans of the RAIN Albaye cooperative (Albaye is the word for the traditional ceremonial wallet worn by men) continue to incorporate traditional themes into designs both new and old with beautiful results. Every purchase directly goes to the women of Albaye to support their families and local school.
