Join us as we visit the farming cooperative, Terre De Lin, in Normandy to learn about their farming practices and the meticulous care that goes into cultivating the flax we use in our linen products. We witness the transformation of the flax fibre as it is prepared to be sent to Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale for spinning.
The unique climate conditions found in the Flanders region of Europe, as well as the mineral-rich soil, contribute to the growth of flax plants that produce fibres that are particularly long and strong. Generations of farming expertise in the region have contributed to the exceptional quality, resulting in linen yarn that is widely regarded as the best in the world.
At Mungo we buy all of our raw materials direct from the source. We manufacture everything ourselves under one roof at our Mill in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. We control the whole journey. Knowing where our yarn comes from, who grows it, and processes, has always been a part of our transparency objective. Visiting, documenting and sharing it with you is part of that too.
