Coverlets were created by American women to express their artistry and skill. During the 18th and 19th centuries, women of all social strata made quilts and coverlets. Although many of these were meant to be primarily utilitarian, they were often designed to be pleasing to the eye as well, and sometimes they were imbued with significance far beyond being simple covers for a bed. Bedcovers were often wedding gifts, or made by a young woman to take with her to her future husband’s house. If that new home was distant from friends and family, a bedcover became an important keepsake from her old life. Quilts were also made to celebrate the birth of a child, and other momentous occasions.
Price includes 1 Juno blanket that is designed, woven & made in South Africa.
Established in 1998, Mungo is a proudly South African company in the business of designing, weaving and producing luxurious, high quality homeware textiles.

Since then Stuart has accumulated a small collection of looms from different weaving eras and developed Mungo’s wide range of products. Today Mungo remains a family-run business, crossing generations. They have three weaving operations. Their working Weaving Museum has become our creative hub where all our sampling is done on some of our oldest looms.

Their boutique mill comprises of their own CMT, inspection and warping equipment along with the more ‘modern’ Rapier looms, which allow them to weave wider fabrics.
