I was a big Mungo fan long before I started working here. It was the Itawuli that first got me. The African Sunset one, to be specific. A student at the time, I had been coveting it for many months before a bout of bronchitis helped me to bring one home.
Open to the public, the mill showcases a cross-section of weaving production from pre-industrial revolution to present day. At once, it has become our new thriving hub of production, and also the embodiment of our commitment to transparency in what we make and do.
Mungo’s big move to the new mill at Old Nick Village. A photo gallery of the men who moved many tons of weaving machinery, and made it all possible.
Lenore Schroeder, our new designer tells us a bit about her career in the world of textiles and her experience working for Mungo.
We are building what we are calling the Mungo Mill, a working weaving museum that will open to the public in order to showcase the age old art of weaving, from pre industrial-revolution to present day.
We now stock a range of Almer’s off-white glazed dinnerware at our shop in Cape Town (78 Hout Street). The collection is classic and versatile. Handmade by Almer in Plettenberg Bay.
The sophisticated Metal Grey is the latest addition to our linen bedding range. This colour enriches and punctuates the soft neutral tones in our collection.
At the Mungo Mill we now have 7 working Dornier Looms which were all made in the 1970s (the older models, although slower, are more versatile). The latest addition being the Wide Width Dornier which arrived from the UK last year.
Here is a sneak peak of the latest at the Mungo Mill. We are gearing up for the holiday season and having a great time producing new colour ways and designs. We hope to see on them the shelves soon!
We can expect a new batch of the ever popular Mancloths, Selvage Serviettes, new Kikoi colours and a little table linen surprise.
