Mungo Towels


Where contemporary textile design meets traditional weaving.

At Mungo we’re humanists, not industrialists – we put people, their visions and livelihoods at the heart of what we do.

And what we do is create heirloom-quality woven goods.

"We hope that when people understand where something comes from or how it is made, they will value it more." 

Clarens Interiors are proud Mungo stockists.

The items listed are from our store at 279 Main Street, Clarens.

    Itawuli Towel


    Taking its name from the isiXhosa word for towel, the Itawuli is perhaps the most iconic towel from our flat weave range. Woven from pure cotton with an eye-catching geometric design, the Itawuli takes inspiration from the Basotho blankets of Southern Africa. A compact and quick-drying towel for bath, pool or beach.

    Hemmed with a hanging loop.

    Tawulo Towel


    The Tawulo is a pure cotton towel that’s perfectly at home on the beach or in the bathroom. One of the unique characteristics of the Tawulo is that no two are exactly the same, due to the random rolling of the weft on the loom.

    The beautiful muted tones of the Tawulo range blend beautifully into many interiors while adding texture and tone to your bathroom. Also a brilliant beach or swimming towel.

    Hemmed with a hanging loop.

    Folly Beach Towel

    A limited edition piece of magic

    On South African beaches the call of ‘lolly to make you jolly’ is a familiar cry from local ice cream sellers. In the same spirit our Folly Beach Towel has become an iconic favourite. Featuring a playful tapestry of colours that reminds us of sunny days and sticky ice cream fingers at the beach. Big, brilliantly bold and 100% cotton.

    Hemmed with a hanging loop.

    A product of ‘weaver’s folly’, the big and bright Folly towel is a must-have for summer.

    Willow Weave Towel
