Mungo Design provides world-class homeware products and asks us to question the sustainability of the textiles which we use on a daily basis.
They are not driven by the latest trends but instead create timeless, heirloom products that do not contribute to next year’s landfill.
Sustainability and traceability are central to Mungo’s ethos. At their mill in Plettenberg Bay, they have a no-waste policy and all of their offcuts are donated to a community project.
They only use plant-based natural yarn, which is renewable and superior to synthetic alternatives, due to its breathability, handle and quality.
In a world that has lost touch with how things are manufactured, Mungo is passionate about showcasing and valuing the manufacturing process. As a result, their mill is open to the public to view and in turn, learn about and experience the art of weaving.
Knowing that every piece of cloth impacts our environment, let us buy local, buy less, choose well and make it last.
Mungo’s CSR programme, MOVE allows for 1% of their annual turnover to go towards projects and initiatives that seek to benefit the Plettenberg Bay area in which their mill is based.
