Man Cloth Apron

$ 35.00

The aptly named "Man Cloth" is a multipurpose half-apron that is based on the traditional Japanese "Homaekake" (work apron). Its natural, rustic colours help reduce the visibility of stains, and a handy locker loop makes for easy and space-efficient storing. The thick and absorbent cotton weave makes this apron just as efficient as dish or hand towel as it is a splash/grease guard at the grill. The lower corners are even reinforced with extra fabric for holding a pan or carrying hot plates. The removable belt adjusts to most waist sizes and can also be used to tether the apron when rolled up and stored. A perfect gift for him, but you may just want to keep it for yourself! We liken it to your favorite pair of "boyfriend" jeans or sleeping in his t-shirt. Made from 100% cotton.

Made in South Africa.


Colours: Black on Grey or Black/Grey on Natural

Measurements: 74cm x 110cm / 29" x 43"


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.
