The Imbali Story

In the early 80’s Helga Filter, after recognising their hidden talents, started training some of the Zulu women on the farm “Wagendrift” to do embroidery and started the Imbali Handcraft Project.

Helga FilterThis is a job creation project based on the “Wagendrift” Farm (Dusk to Dawn Guesthouse) in the southern part of Mpumalanga, South Africa, offering a form of income for otherwise unemployed Zulu women living on the farm.

Imbali makes and embroiders tablecloths, serviettes, runners, place mats, tray cloths, t-shirts and duvet covers. Customers can choose from the many different designs or choose their own and have table cloths, etc. made in any size, shape or colour.

The name Imbali has become widely known in the crafter fraternity for its colourful designs and exquisite hand-embroidery. Because of its uniqueness, many of the crafts find their way overseas making ideal gifts to take home or for people to send to relatives and friends. 

In this way the product ends up in the hands and hearts of those who appreciate hand-embroidered linen, as machine embroidery just does not compare!


Imbali products are available in the craft shop at the Dusk to Dawn Guesthouse 
and can be ordered from dtd@ptr.dorea.co.za.
