Maseru Tapestries is a cooperative of women weavers; it was founded in 2001 with 10 members and has doubled to 20.
The women artisans produce traditional frame loom wool and mohair tapestries which are sewn into bags. Each bag is hand-spun and hand-woven by women at Maseru Tapestries in Lesotho. Their products reflect the warmth and vibrancy of life in Africa while achieving a high standard of professional design and styles. They are hand-woven using mohair, which is moth-proofed and it obtains its glorious colors from colorfast dyes.
The women in Maseru Tapestries and Mats are creating exquisite and dynamic pieces of art that enhance people’s lives and share cultural information and at the same time they are able to support their children through their work.
