Woven on our 120-year-old Lancashire shuttle looms, which results in a baby blanket with a looser tension, softer feel and a true selvedge (a self-finished edge that prevents the fabric from fraying).
The unique textural weave of our cot blankets is designed to be gentle and soothing to soft skin. Woven with a traditional basket twill weave that is warm and chunky, but also loose and breathable – making it ideally suited for the warm summer months.
Designed, woven, made at the Mungo Mill in Plettenberg Bay.

– Dax Holding, Managing Director
At Mungo we commit to continually tweaking, refining and innovating to ensure that all our production processes are done with the utmost respect for people and the planet. Organic cotton farming presents a future for more sustainable textile production, and going forward we’d like to shift all our yarn to organic sources.
What is GOTS?
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the world-leading textile processing standard for organic fibres. It ensures that our cotton is grown without harsh chemicals, relying on the wisdom of farmers. It defines the highest level of environmental and social criteria, from harvesting, to socially responsible manufacturing, providing a credible assurance along the entire supply chain.
South Africa’s First GOTS Mill
In 2020 we undertook to acquire GOTS certification. Over a three-day period, each division of the Mungo Mill in Plettenberg Bay was carefully scrutinised by Control Union – an independent certification body. We were monitored from waste disposal to yarn lots, energy consumption, labour practices and health and safety. Compliance was met across the board, from our design and production, right through to our weaving, CMT, finishing, laundry, wholesale and retail departments… thus making us the first GOTS-certified weaving mill in the country.
Open daily to the public, the Mungo Mill evidences our commitment to open and transparent production, where we weave heirloom-quality textiles using the highest quality threads.
