Thank you, my partner had an inkling that that is where they came from, but would they already have been made for the African market and who would have ordered them? My partner thinks along the line of Indian (Muslim) traders, Mekka, Hausa,... Africa but this is just a hypothesis.
Any additional info would be welcome!
PS: these specific talhakimts come from deep down South of Morocco, as you may know: southern Draa valley, south of Zagora,(so not Tuareg area)-info from our source, but we have no pictures how they were worn. Rouach 'Bijoux Berbčres au Maroc' 1981, p204, situates them in the Djbel Bani oasis, a bit more north.
