What is a Jaima​?

The Jaima is a tent made of leather that is used by Arab nomads to house one or more people. Each of these stores receives the name of jaima. The name derives from “campiña”, which refers to the extensions of land for farmland.

Mainly, the materials used to make the tents are camel, goat, esparto grass or palm heart hair.
