Tuareg Assrou N’ Swoul (Veil weight)
The phrase assrou n swoul (assrou n’ swoul), is generally translated as “the key which is thrown over the shoulder “. This elaborate key-like pendant is often worn by wealthier women as a counterweight to keep their head-cloths or robes from being blown away by the Sahara’s winds. Veil weights are hand-made, using brass, copper, iron, silver.
