The Folly Beach Towel by Mungo

WORDS Michaela Stehr

The Folly, local textile brand Mungo’s biggest and brightest beach towel to date, is a self-proclaimed happy accident.

“Weaver’s folly’ is what the team at Mungo explain as an error on the loom, which in this case resulted in a different outcome to what was initially planned for The Folly towel.

The Folly is available in two colourways, Fiddler Crab and Blue Crab, creatures indigenous to the area of Folly Beach in South Carolina, where Mungo recently launched an online store.

Each towel, which retails at R800, is made from 100% cotton for maximum absorbency.
