Our Mill


In 2017, we opened the Mungo Mill, on the grounds of Old Nick Village alongside our flagship store. Open to the public, it is the embodiment of our commitment to transparency. Visitors can witness the age old art of weaving come to life - amid the characteristic sound of the looms. The visually stunning mill houses our collection of 16 restored looms, some of which date back almost 100 years.Herewith a collection of blogs about the Mungo Mill - stories about how it came to be, its everyday running, the workshops we've hosted through our CSR MOVE and our beloved old looms.Read more about the opening of the mill, or our Hope Kikoi - designed by a student of Crags Primary and sold in aid of the Kids of Kurland foundation. Or browse some photos of our team in action - moving our looms from our former mill in the Crags to our new Old Nick Village location.And if you're plotting a trip up the West Coast, don't miss our 'Self-Drive to the Garden Route' blog.
