Wooden bowls are carved out of African hardwoods, making them durable and multi-functional.
They have a beautiful symmetry. Most of the bowls are decoratively carved on the outside with geometrical shapes. Read the story..
The Tuareg are nomadic Berbers who inhabit the Sahara and Sahel. Dromedaries are part of their culture and it’s because of these amazing animals that they manage to travel long distances through the desert.
Because the Tuareg are nomadic, they are limited in their possessions - for this reason everything that they own is not only beautiful and highly decorative, but also functional. These Tazawat round bottom bowls are used by the Tuareg to store and carry milk.
Every bowl is a unique piece, sometimes cracks or holes in the bowls are repaired with pieces of metal. These repairs are hammered onto the wood and decorated with patterns. The repairs can add to the aesthetic appeal of the bowl.
