The story behind the Mungo Mali Cushion Cover began years ago when Master Weaver Stuart Holding embarked on a trip to Mali to learn about its ancient textile traditions. The truth is he was there for a music festival, but Stu can smell a loom a mile away.

Mali is well known for its beautiful textiles, from mud-died fabrics to woven strip-cloth. Stuart’s fascination for textiles lead him in search of local independent weavers and indigo dyers across the country.

Strip weaving is one of Africa’s oldest art forms. Handlooms are used to weave long narrow strip panels, which are then sewn together to form a wide cloth. Rows of patterns are added by means of weft floats (threads that run laterally). The intricate detail of the motifs is something that can only be achieved through this hand-made process.

At Mungo, inspiration has been drawn from the geometric row designs and weft faced weave construction of this unique traditional African textile. Our Mungo Mali Cloth is woven from pure cotton at the Mungo Mill, and comes in a range of vibrant and textured colourways.

We believe in giving back to people and planet. That’s why we donate 1% of our annual turnover towards projects and causes that support the environmental and social development of the Plettenberg Bay community in which we operate. We do this through our CSR programme, MOVE.

We do sell cushion inners to the size of our covers. Please contact us for a separate quote and shipping costs.
Also available in matching Mali Table Runners. Check out the blog post on the Mali cloth here.
