The Bijou is our adventure towel, ideal for impromptu ventures to the beach, the mountains – to nature on your doorstep.
After a period of limited movement, the Bijou is a companion for our rediscovery of open spaces. Compact, elegant and versatile, it is the perfect roll-up-and-go option designed for ease of movement and storage.
The Bijou is made from 100% cotton, sourced from various sites in Southern Africa and spun in Pietermaritzburg, before being crafted at our mill in Plettenberg Bay. It is the latest in our range of flat weave towels; a combination of honey and diamond weaving that is slightly looser, adding texture and giving the fabric a luxurious ‘handle’ or feel.
Noun: a jewel or trinket.
Adjective: small and elegant.
Unlike the more mainstream terry loop design, flat weaves are characteristically lighter and more compact, while still highly absorbent and quick drying.
The Bijou is elegant, versatile and affordable – and being smaller than the other towels in the range it’s also perfect as a large towel for children.
As with all Mungo fabrics, the Bijou is eco-friendly; natural fibres mean low bulk for the washing load while the towel’s longevity means it won’t end up in landfill. This towel is made to last and its natural fibres will gain softness and feel over time.
1% of every Mungo purchase goes towards MOVE, our initiative that aims to empower and uplift the Plettenberg Bay community.
