PRODUCT DETAILS

Classic Huckaback towels woven on 19th Century shuttle looms - yarn dyed with a true selvedge. These cotton and linen blend hand towels come in a generous size and are sturdily constructed. The linen and cotton blend will become more absorbent and softer after each wash. As is the case with all our flat weave towels, they stay fresher longer and use less water to launder so they are eco-responsible as well as beautiful. Also available in a bath towel size.

Made in South Africa.

These towels will become softer and more absorbent with each wash. Once you've towelled off please hang to dry. Some flat weave towels will be dry within an hour after hanging. Machine wash warm. Tumble dry low. Do not use bleach. Properly cared for, a flat weave towel can be used for four or five days in a row before it requires laundering.

WHY WE LOVE THIS

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.
