Generously sized White Selvedge Serviettes, woven from pure linen yarn with a woven stripe detail.
Used either as a set in one colour, or as originally intended as a mixed range. This quirky idea came from a family holiday, when laundry was not high priority and serviettes were reused for a few evenings in a row. This way, by assigning each family member a colour, no cross contamination and confusion could arise over whose serviette was whose! We think that is pretty neat.
These serviettes are individually woven from pure linen yarn on the restored Ruti shuttle looms. One of the things that differentiates shuttle looms from the more modern rapier looms is their ability to weave true selvedge – a tightly woven ‘self-finished’ edge that runs lengthwise along a fabric’s edge. This prevents the fabric from fraying or unraveling.
Attractive, practical and fit for the whole gang.
Our linen yarn is sourced from Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale – a company based in Bergamo, Italy, that has been in the business of spinning top-quality linen yarn since 1873. As an OEKO-TEX-certified producer, in LCN we found an ethos that matched our own – a commitment to exceptional quality and sustainable production.
Like all our products, the Selvedge Serviette is designed, woven and made at the Mungo Mill. Located in Plettenberg Bay, our mill is open to the public. A percentage of each Mungo purchase goes towards our CSR, MOVE, which seeks to empower the community of Plettenberg Bay.
