Why We Love It

These textiles live in a world that's the perfect blend of vintage and modern. I can see these patterns and colors existing in a home that ebbs and flows between both ideals. In addition to these being beautiful, the brand story is rooted in tradition with a modern approach to business.

About the Maker: Mungo

Our Story Begins With Just Two Old Looms In 1998, Master Weaver Stuart Holding came into possession of two restored antique looms. He used these looms to weave limited runs of beautiful homeware textiles from what he called his ‘working weaving museum’ – an old barn where passersby could watch him work. He sold the resulting small textiles in his wife, Janet’s, shop. Soon demand outstripped supply and Mungo expanded production to a mill housed in an old dairy building a few kilometers away. Years later, things have changed; we have left the cows behind, moved to our very own mill and opened four stores in South Africa. Our one-man team has grown to a family of over 80. Although we are growing, our foundational values remain the same – to produce beautifully designed homeware textiles, woven with care for our community and the environment.

In 2017 the Mungo team fulfilled a long cherished dream; building our own mill on the grounds of Old Nick Village, near Stuart’s original barn, and next door to our flagship store. The Mungo Mill is a testament to our philosophy of transparency in the production process. And those two old looms? Still going strong.

Pursuant to our sustainability objectives, in 2020 we underwent an audit for Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification. We are now South Africa’s first GOTS-certified textile weaving mill.
