Nomadic market vendors - Soft pod tribes

Feminine nomad groups

An interesting subculture among the nomads are the soft pod tribes. These nomadic groups consist only out of women. Soft pod tribes rely on camels to travel long distances. They organize the large souk markets.

The soft pods

The name soft pod tribes is derived from the shelters they use. The women use small pods made from soft textile materials. Some are foldable just like tents and others can be installed on the back of camels. The pods are only used to sleep. All other spaces like shower halls, kitchens, dining rooms, living rooms are shared spaces. At each new camp site they rebuild them.
