Grecian Cotton and Linen Bath Towel
Introducing the Grecian Towel. Linen can absorb up to 20% of its weight in moisture before it feels damp, making it a fantastic fibre for a towel while the cotton content keeps it soft to the touch. Each wash makes them even softer and more absorbent. As with all our flat weave towels, they dry faster between uses that conventional terry, stay fresher longer and require less water and detergent to wash. We adore these towels! Not only are they refined looking, but they are perfectly suited for all seasons. Also available in a hand towel size.
Made in South Africa.
Measures 85cm x 160 cm / 33.5" x 63"
Available in Taupe or Dark Grey Stripe on Natural.
Mungo Design owes its uniqueness to its founder Stuart Holding, whose passion for the design and manufacture of quality textiles is drawn from his apprenticeship as a teenager in the silk mills of Yorkshire, where the traditional methods of power loom weaving were still used. Mungo Design is situated at Old Nick Village, a 19th Century Cape farm complex near Plettenberg Bay South Africa, which houses artists, crafters and other creative spirits who sell their wares in a verdant rural atmosphere. Central to the Village is the Living Weaving Museum where Stuart's enthusiasm for old textile equipment is played out in the production of individually loomed unique narrow fabrics with a true selvage.
Using the timeless art of weaving, Mungo creates exquisite fabrics which are both useful and enduring and bring beauty into people's lives. They embrace the philosophy of responsibility and fair trade, respecting the natural environment and empowering local communities.
