Handicraft

In the oasis, handmade craft production tries to fill local needs and the demand of the nomad population in the area. The iron work is a labor undertaken specifically by the Black people. The silversmith’s work was long ago a specialty of Hebrews. Carpentry and saddle making are both done by men as a job.

Women weave carpets and blankets and embroider shawls, not in a professional way but as a complementary activity along with the housework.
