The Flax Towel is a lightweight, quick-drying linen towel, suited for bath or beach.100% flax linen, woven from the finest Italian-spun threads.
Derived from the fibres of the flax plant, linen yarn has an unmatched handle. The final textile is light, soft and refined, with a unique natural lustre.
Lighter than cotton, linen makes for a perfectly breezy beach or bath towel – drying quickly and wicking water from the skin with ease.
Quick to dry and characteristically compact, it makes for easy travel or beach-bag storage. With a subtly textural handle that leaves your skin soft and refreshed.
Initially crisp to the touch, it will grow more yielding, developing its character with time and use.

All Mungo products are carefully designed and individually woven on refurbished looms at the Mungo Mill in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa.
Their linen is grown in the Flanders fields of Europe, where the climate and soil are best suited for flax cultivation. The fibres are then pulled, retted and scutched the traditional way, before being spun by our master spinners in Bergamo, Italy. In operation since 1873, and OEKO-TEX certified to ensure credible earth-friendly production, Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale leads the way for a low-impact and elegant natural material.

About The Brand
The story begins with just two old antique looms that Master Weaver Stuart Holding came into possession of. 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.
Today, guided by a mission "to create heirloom-quality woven goods with integrity in an open and transparent manner", the Mungo team operate South Africa’s first GOTS-certified textile weaving mill on the grounds of Old Nick Village, near Stuart’s original barn, where the entire mill is open to the public. Mungo Textiles also gives back 1% of their annual turnover to a number of social & environmental initiatives via their purpose-built MOVE programme.
