Mapula sampler by Maria Mmastsie - plants, people, animals, more - beautiful
Availability: Sorry! One of a kind - gone to a new home
Beautifully stitched embroidered wall hanging with a conglomeration of elephants, giraffes, and plants and more, all native to rural South Africa. Designed and stitched by Maria Mmatsie of the Mapula Embroidery Project, an internationally celebrated women's empowerment project. Embroidered images jump from the tightly woven black cotton background fabric. All edges turned and hemmed with machine stitching. 

Reminiscent of a sampler in which the artists refines and perfects her skill in stitching all the forms common to her in her world.

Suitable for hanging from a rod (will require a pocket to be added to the back for rod) or framing if stretched over a frame (as artists' canvas is stretched) or hung in a 'shadow box' type frame.  Regardless of how this lovely piece is displayed, appreciation of the joyfulness of the images and the quality of the stitchery is irresistible.

Approximately 25"x43". See dimensions and other specifics under the 'Product Features' tab.

Individually tagged with artist's name on slip of paper - removable yet can be saved. (Can see this 'white spot' in the image shown).


If necessary, Mapula Emproidery Project creations may be gently hand washed in cold water. We are advised to avoid the use of detergents. If soap is necessary, try a gentle dish soap or other product intended for delicate textiles. Test on the back or inconspicuous location to be sure it does not affect the dyes. Blot and let air dry.

If necessary, iron at lowest (nylon/acrylic) setting on the back-side with a steam iron using an ironing cloth between the embroidery and the iron.

We carefully test-washed a piece with dish soap with good results, but we are not liable for damage caused by washing. Our best advice is to wash only if necessary and then to proceed with care.
