100% linen fitted sheets
Woven with pure Italian-spun linen threads at the Mungo Mill in Plettenberg Bay.
From Field to Fibre
Our linen bedding is woven with the world’s most ancient and noble fibre – pure flax.
Grown in Upper Normandy by our farmers at Terre de Lin. Cultivated in fields that require little, if any, human interference.
Spun into golden-grey threads by our Italian Master Spinners, Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale, and yarn-dyed for brilliant colour fastness.
Then to the Mungo Mill in Plettenberg Bay, to be warped, woven, pressed, cut and sewn into our range of premium linen bedding.

For the Love of Linen
Linen is a fibre that’s easy to love.
Soft, long-lasting, and with a crisp, cool finish that develops its lived-in quality over time.
Highly breathable, it will see you through the seasons – helping to get the temperature ‘just right’ no matter the weather.
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.
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.
Our linen fabric is Indanthrene vat dyed. This involves the dyeing of threads before they are woven into cloth – unlike the piece-dyeing process, in which a finished fabric is immersed into a dye bath. Vat dyes are known for their rich and vivid pigments, excellent colour fastness and resistance to fading through sun exposure or washing. A hallmark of quality that will ensure your Mungo linen maintains its brilliant colour over time.
Our Kamma Linen Fitted Sheets have a 35 cm depth to accommodate thicker mattresses, but can be tucked in around standard size mattresses too.
Our mill, a sensory space which forms of the heart of our production, is open to the public in an act of transparency. We commit to upholding fair-trade production principles, in addition to donating 1% of our annual turnover to our Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, MOVE.
