The Tawulo is a classic and original addition to the Mungo flat weave towel range. This textured, monochrome range is punctuated with a few bold pops of colour in the striped details. One of the defining characteristics is that no two Tawulo’s are the same, thanks to the random rolling of the weft yarn in the weaving process.

The inspiration behind this technique comes from the historical weavers in West Africa. Traditionally coloured yarns were obtained by extracting natural dyes from plants, which was limited to what grew in their region. When traders began to come to Africa from all over the world they brought exotically coloured fabrics with them. These fabrics were unravelled and the yarns re-woven in combination with local yarns to create a hybrid of pattern and colour.

The Tawulo flat weave towels are all woven from 100% cotton grown in Southern Africa. They are highly absorbent, quick-drying and eco-friendly due to their low bulk. A versatile bath, pool or beach towel which folds tight when travelling.

Our flat weave towels are woven at the Mungo Mill in Plettenberg Bay. Visit us at Old Nick Village for a free guided tour & the chance to see your Tawulo on one of our refurbished antique looms.
