Most popular is the large tote bag.


These 40 x 40 cm (15.7 x 15.7 inch) bags come with a double shoulder strap. They are hand embroidered on black cotton fabric on one side and lined with a bright ‘African print’ cotton fabric on the inside. The designs are of animals, flowers and rural scenes in bright colours.


These beautiful bags are also popular with both conference organisers and delegates, and make a lovely corporate gift. By purchasing these bags for conferences or as corporate gifts, companies can fulfil their corporate social responsibility goals. The income generated from these sales, supports the women and children of the Mapula Embroideries who live in a disadvantaged community.


Bespoke designs for orders of 40 bags or more can be taken. A conference theme in line with the Mapula designs can be negotiated if the order is placed at least 3 months in advance. Keep in mind – this is a handmade product and takes time to execute.
