Handmade treasures

Tunisia has built up centuries of craftsmanship. Since time immemorial, potters have been turning enormous vases and women have been weaving carpets with geometric patterns. Ceremonial outfits covered in embroidery, palaces decorated with sculpted plaster and multi-coloured earthenware bear witness to influences from around the world, from Andalusia and Italy to Turkey. From one region to the next, from one workshop to the next, you can marvel at the inventiveness, skill and rich heritage of Tunisia’s craftsmen and women.
