Winterveldt Embroidered Bags and Cushion Covers

The handcrafted embroidered bags and cushion covers are made of 100 % black calico cotton, which is strong and serviceable.  They are made by unemployed illiterate adult women in Winterveldt, South Africa.  Purchase of the bags and cushion covers will help the women to buy the materials to continue the project, which has won a prestigious award in South Africa.
