The Bakuba Throw is inspired by the rhythmic design of the Kuba Cloth, which has been woven for centuries in Central Africa. Traditionally it was woven from fronds of the raffia palm tree and decorated with natural dyes and embroidery.

The Kuba Cloth is one of the most visually exciting fabrics in the world and has influenced many artists including Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. Matisse was so fascinated by this cloth that he kept a large collection and displayed it on his studio walls.

Our own interest in this wonderful and unique African textile has inspired the design of the Bakuba Throw. It is bold and vibrant yet elegant and sophisticated. Woven from 100% cotton grown in Southern Africa at the Mungo Mill.

Cotton is a wonderfully soft fibre, praised for its durability. A strong colour fastness means your Bakuba Throw will retain its colour well, while its breathability is great for getting the temperature ‘just right’ regardless of the season.

As part of our sustainability objective, we contribute 1% of our annual turnover to our Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative, MOVE, which seeks to protect the environment, and empower the people, of the Plettenberg Bay community where our mill and flagship store is based.

  1. Quality, Local, Community

    We have several of the Bakuba throws in Tumeric and oth grays. They are soft, work well as couch throws or on the bed and have a wonderful design that is eye catching but also fits well into more modern/ neutral decors. The company ethos, sourcing and goal of preserving older weaving techniques and equipment speaks to me. I really like the program where they have a competition for school aged children to design a wrap. We have several of the latest young winner’s design and it is such a cool concept!

  2. Tumeric Bakuba perfection.

    Stunning Tumeric Bakuba throw – it’s simply gorgeous. I’m using a double size as a queen bedspread. Perfect weight, generous size and divine colour, herringbone pattern. Ordered on a Thursday and delivered to Australia by the next Wednesday. Totally extraordinary online service, communication, practical packaging and A1 quality design and quality as typical from Mungo Mill. Unprecedented quality and delivery. Thank you!
