I discovered these by accident a few weeks ago. Light, absorbent, waffle-weave Belgian Waffle Mungo towels. They are, without a shadow of a doubt, the best towels I have EVER used.
They dry you in an instant, and dry themselves very quickly. Super-pretty and apparently last really well, though we only (sadly) used them for a few days.
These are the bath towels:
..and these are the beach towels:
We passed the Mungo Mill on our way, and I would have loved to stop there, buy some products, and look at some traditional weaving techniques. These towels would have been very light to carry home as well.
We are responsible from the inception of design to the final product, right here in South Africa. Our patterns are still drawn by hand, with paper and pencil not a keyboard. Our sample runs are done on restored antique looms in the weaving museum at Old Nick Village and we test them in our homes. The Mungo Mill is situated on a dairy farm in the Crags just outside Plettenberg Bay. Here our team weave and finish all our textiles. We only use natural fibers and where possible we source our yarn from South Africa.
