Skillful Tunisian craftsman continues making bird cages for 50 years


Hadi Arfaoui, a Tunisian craftsman, has been making bird cages for 50 years, where the old profession is considered a symbol of Tunisia, especially in the city of Sidi Bou Said.

The cages of the Hadi consist of a dome above a bird’s room with windows similar to those of the houses of the old cities and the city of Sidi Bou Said in Tunis. Raising rare and colorful birds, especially canaries, is widespread in Tunisia, so buying cages is very popular too.

Some people buy ordinary cages to raise birds for the purpose of trade, while others look for high-quality and aesthetic cages to decorate homes, gardens, or balconies, one of which is sold at about $100.
