Mapula embroidered cushion 40x40 - South Africa


MAPULA (Mother of Rain) embroideries are original, designed and hand made by about 150 women .  Their work hangs in museums and private collections worldwide.
Embroiderers work at home and from a base at the DWT Nthathe Adult Education Centre with the Sisters of Mercy in the Winterveld, 40km northwest of Pretoria. 
Since 1991 the income has empowered the women, helped them feed and educate their children and improve their lives. 

Initiated by Pretoria Soroptomists, MAPULA EMBROIDERIES is now an independent Trust with ongoing Soroptimist international Pretoria-Tshwane Club support. 

Beautifully embroidered cover no inner.  

Note:  one of the 150 embroiderers names labels are attached to each cushion cover which you can easily remove. See image.
