Mungo recently launched MOVE, our social responsibility initiative.
Part of our focus with this has been on the Kids of Kurland Project, a volunteer organisation providing life skills education to children in Plettenberg Bay to help them overcome the social issues in their community.
We invited 14 kids from The Crags Primary School to attend a tour and workshop at our mill, with the end goal of everyone designing their own kikoi stripe and colour way.
Student Hope Davids’s design was chosen as the winner, and her kikoi – ‘Mungo’s Hope’ – was put into production. We can proudly say that all the profits of the Kids of Kurland Kikoi will go back into her school to fund an additional teacher.
Introducing ‘Mungo’s Hope’ – a 100% cotton kikoi that can be enjoyed all the more with an appreciation for the forces that came together to make it.
