The vibrant Vadoek cloth brings a splash of colour and a sense of playfulness to the Mungo kitchen linen range.
Wanting to add some texture to complement the traditional check design, Lenore turned to Master Weaver Stuart Holding’s ancient pattern books and found the mock Leno weave, from the same family as the Mungo Huck. The 3D effect created by the Leno’s interlacing of the warp and the weft allows for greater absorbency in the bulkier parts of the Vadoek, with the strips of plain weave in between helping it to dry quickly. Perfect.
Lenore then stood at the Dornier loom and let inspiration hit. The designs are planned way ahead of time, but “sometimes when you get to the loom you just have this inner voice saying add some yellow, or green,” she explains. Exercising as much restraint as she could as a lover of colour, she still managed to pull a total of 15 different hues into the range of 9 Vadoeks. We’re not complaining – these cloths could make even doing the dishes feel like a party.
Woven from pure cotton at the Mungo Mill in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa.
