 MAPULA (Mother of Rain) EMBROIDERIES is a South African community art project that began in 1991. The Mapula Group consists of 150 women who design and produce handmade embroidered products. Each product is created  by individual women who decide on the colours and stitch to create bright, unique Mapula items.

Embroiderers work at home and form base at the DWT Nthathe Adult Education Centre with the sisters of mercy in the Winterveld 40km northwest of Pretoria. The income received by the embroiderers have empowered the women, helped them feed and educate their children and improved their lives.

As these are handmade products, please allow for variations in design and slight variations in size. All products are made with South African materials, and have a label with washing instructions. You can find more information on
