MUNGO

Mungo is a GOTS-certified homeware textiles company born and bred in South Africa.  

From humble beginnings in 1998, Mungo has built their foundations in traditional weaving techniques on restored looms, sourcing quality natural fibers, and creating beautifully designed homewares. 

Grown to a team of over 80 members, Mungo now has their own mill championing transparency in the production process with the entire mill open to the public. As of 2020, Mungo achieved Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification making them South Africa's first GOTS-certified textile weaving mill. 

Mungo's signature flat weave technique creates versatility for their products meaning they can be used for bathroom, beach, adventure or pool. They are more durable than traditional terry towelling and due to their lightweight nature, there's less bulk for your washing load, saving water.

"We believe strongly that what we create, and the manner in which we create it, will filter down to the end-user and help to improve the world we live in"

Mungo also has their own corporate social responsibility programme, MOVE, supporting projects and initiatives that seek to benefit and empower the Plettenberg Bay area in which its mill and entire production process is brand. This means a continued commitment of 1% of annual turnover towards these projects supporting their poeple and planet.
