Grecian Cotton and Linen Hand Towel
Introducing the linen/cotton blend Grecian towel. Linen can absorb up to 20% of its weight in moisture before it feels damp, while cotton is renowned for its soft hand and gentle touch. Combining these two fibers together results in a high quality, high performance towel. With each wash these towels grow softer and more absorbent and, as with all our flat weave towels, they dry faster between uses, stay fresh longer and require less water and detergent to wash. The slightly heavier weight of the Grecian make them a perfect choice for year-round bathing. Also available as a bath towel.
Made in South Africa.
Measures 50cm x 85cm / 19.5" x 33.5"
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.
