At Mungo, we believe that quality bed linen is an investment. And if you’re spending up to 30% of your life in bed, it’s worth getting your return.

That’s why we weave our Kamma Linen Duvet Cover with the finest Italian-spun pure flax yarn. Linen is a fibre that’s easy to love – it’s soft, long-lasting and has a crisp, cool finish. It is also a breathable fabric, meaning it’s perfect for getting the temperature ‘just right’ – no matter the season.

Recently we undertook a journey in search of the finest linen yarn the world has to offer. We traveled due North and found ourselves on the cobbled streets of Italy. There we met Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale. As an OEKO-TEX-certified producer, in LCN we found an ethos that matched our own – a commitment to exceptional quality and sustainable production.The final outcome of that journey, our Tsitsikamma Linen range.

There are many steps to producing premium quality flax yarn, it’s a 100 day process from seed to harvesting, something LCN knows everything about having been in operation since 1873. The flax is grown in Italy, Belgium and France and taken through scutching, combing and spinning before being vat dyed for brilliant even colour and light fastness. Finally it wings its way to Plettenberg Bay to be woven into our beautiful linen fabric.

Flax is not a complicated plant – no chemicals and oils are used when processing. For centuries it has been grown in Western Europe where the climate is humid and the season change most suitable. It is a noble material, which gains character through age and use.

Treated well your Mungo linen will return the favour. Linen softens over time and with use, and is crisp when first woven. While many producers stone-wash it to hasten the process, this artificial method can compromise the integrity of the linen. At Mungo we avoid stone-washing, and use the highest quality yarn and a strong well constructed weave. Your linen will last longer and grow soft and accommodating, ageing gracefully.

Our Kamma Linen Duvet Cover, which take its name from the Tsitsikamma forest near to our mill and flagship store, features a double-stitch border and hidden mother of pearl buttons for an added sophisticated touch.

Your Mungo purchase contributes towards our CSR initiative; we commit to donating 1% of our annual turnover to projects that uplift and empower the Plettenberg Bay community in which our production process is based.

We’re quite adamant that sleeping under linen bedding is the way forward, we believe it so much we wrote a blog about it here.

Please Note: Our Kamma Linen products have a lead time of about 1 week as they are made per order. Well worth the extra wait!
Please note that our linen fabric is naturally coarser to the touch than cotton. A unique feel preferred by some, this is also a marker of its long-lasting quality. Over time and use linen will also grow softer and more yielding.
The linen fabric is woven to a width of 180cm with a double stitch border. We add a panel detail with a blind seam on either side to all the sizes bigger than single/three-quarter excluding the single cover. The panel gets wider as the sizes gets larger.
The thread count is the number of weft and warp threads that are woven into a square inch of fabric. Linen fabric will never reach the high thread counts of Egyptian cotton sheeting because the flax plant’s fibre does not grow to have a fine staple which allows the spinner to spin a very thin yarn necessary for a high thread count. Thread count is not an indication of quality, as linen fabric has a much lower thread count but is considered by many to be a far superior fabric.
