The Berber Fibula

The fibula is a brooch which is absolutely necessary for the traditional cloths of  berber women, because they did not know buttons. The cloth is draped and fixed below the shoulders by use of a fibula. There are great regional particularities of fibulas. The plate on which the fibula is fixed can be made in a number of ways. Big or small, round, oval or square, massive or chased, enameled or decorated with gemstones or glass.
