Travel bag of nomadic peoples
Travel bags, cushions and wineskins, among other items, were made of camel, sheep or goat skin, which once cured, were engraved, painted and sewn together. Nomadic groups in Central Africa used travel bags or tazufras, to carry all their domestic equipment during journeys. These sacks were firmly tied to the rumps of camels with leather straps. It was women who specialised in leatherwork and textiles, while men did carpentry, gold and silverwork, and work at the smithy.
