Mapula has a selection of colourful hand embroidered cloths. Although mostly used as wall hangings, they are also sought after by interior decorators and collectors worldwide. Designated artists/designers, Selinah Makwana, members of the Maepa family, Dorah Hlongwane, Maria Rengane and Elizabeth Malete, draw the images while the other embroiderers translate the images into brightly embroidered cloths with colours of their choice. This ensures every piece is different and original.

It can take between two to three months for a woman or sometimes two women to embroider a large wall hanging. 

These individually designed and hand embroidered wall hangings and works of art are made from local and responsibly sourced pure cotton. Our embroidery yarn is colour-fast to maintain its brightness. 


The completed wall hanging is overlocked by machine which allows a border of approximately 10 cms in order to stretch it over a frame. The Mapula Embroideries wall hangings are well known for their social and political story telling comments in their designs. A new range of beautiful Botanical designs are now available as well.


Bespoke designs for special occasions and celebrations can be done. Quotes will be worked out on an individual basis. Mapula commissions can be negotiated if the order is placed at least 3 months in advance. A deposit of 50% will be required. Keep in mind that this is a handmade product and takes time to execute.


All Mapula products are made by the Mapula women in the Winterveld, from the design phase to the final product. Your purchase provides a supporting income to these women. 


 Size 110 x110 cm, (43.5 x 43.5 inch)


* Do not hang wall hangings in direct sunlight as the black Edenrose fabric will fade.
