Mungo Itawuli Pure Cotton Blue Moon Bath Towel



The Mungo Itawuli Pure Cotton Blue Moon Bath Towel or Bath Sheet is a flat weave, generous size bath sheet or bath towel that is woven from 100% cotton and has an incredibly soft cotton feel.   The towel features a geometric, diamond design throughout with blue (hint of purple), white and gray colors.  The hemmed bath towel is sized at 43″ x 75″ (108cm x 190cm).   Price includes 1 bath sheet/towel.

Itawuli, which translates to towel in Xhosa, is a beautiful towel inspired by the African landscape and heritage.  With its intricate patterns, bold and warm colors, this towel is a definite keepsake.  The stripe detail that runs through the middle of the towel is a favored pattern used in the traditional woolen Basotho Blankets. These blankets were initially woven in England and this stripe was originally a mistake through lack of communication, it however became very popular amongst communities in South Africa so was then incorporated into the design.

This flat weave bath towel is individually woven in South Africa using only the highest quality natural fibers giving it these unique features:

Highly absorbent
Quick drying
Low bulk uses less power for wash and dry
Versatile bath, pool, beach towel
Compact for traveling
