Tuareg Mat Guga (Strength)

Tuareg Mat Guga (Strength)


Dimensions: 9’1 x 13’11

Made in the first years of the 20th century, mats produced from the Tuareg tribes of Sahara Mauritania had a significant place in Tuareg culture and have been hand-woven by women for thousands of years. The women who hand-wove these Tuareg Mats used convenient materials such as palms and reeds. Once completing the base, they would then decorate them with intricate leather strands of camel or goat leather often adorned with powerful symbols. Each piece is antique and very special. 

Due to the handmade and vintage nature of this mat please expect some wear and imperfections. Please see all photos and email us with any questions.

Due to the large dimensions of this item, expected shipping time will be around 2-3 weeks.
