Kikois from Mungo

I’m loving these bright and beautiful kikois from Mungo. These traditional African garments are woven on newly restored Ruti Looms (which date back to the 1940’s) in Mungo’s mill located at the Old Nick Village in Plettenberg Bay.

 
For more than 15 years Mungo has been weaving quality, natural fibre homeware textiles many woven on antique 19th century Hattersley looms in their Weaving Museum. These restored looms reflect their philosophy of using the timeless art of weaving to create high quality contemporary products.

These pure cotton kikoi’s are the perfect beach and travel companion and are available in assorted, vibrant colours for R196 each via www.mungoretail.com or at their retail shops in the historical homestead of Old Nick Village, Plettenberg Bay or Fabric Hangar in Sandton, Johannesburg.
