Itawuli Towel - Blue MoonITAWULI1
The Mungo Itawuli takes its name from the isiXhosa word for ‘towel’. The Itawuli has become one of the most iconic towels in their range, loved for its bold design and versatility. We’ve seen them used as picnic blankets, a summer throw, yoga mat cover and a tablecloth – they’ve even been turned into clothing!
The striped detail that runs through the middle of the Itawuli makes reference to traditional woolen Basotho Blankets. These blankets were initially woven in England. As the story goes, the ‘pinstripe’ was woven in to indicate where the fabric was to be cut. But a batch with stripes intact made its way to South Africa. The supposed flaw became popular and was incorporated and uplifted in the local design. R\
The Itawuli is woven from 100% pure cotton grown in Southern Africa. What’s more, the flat weave design of our towels allows them to fold up tight, ensuring they use less space and water when washing and that they travel well.
