Mungo Designer Lenore Schroeder is the creative behind the colourful and bold vrou vrou throw. Vrou Vrou is a play on the word ‘frou frou’ which means heavenly ornamental and elaborate (adj.) or a rustling sound of fabric (n.)
With its colour and bold textile design, the vrou vrou is chameleon-like because no two folds appear the same. The design was inspired by Mungo’s classic and traditional Harris Tweed throw.
Lenore’s use of intersectional colour with plaid took something classic and turned it into something intriguing, graphic and contemporary.
‘It is not the stripes and checks that inspire me as much as what happens when the colours intersect and combine. The blocks of tones created by the 3-dimensional weave produce the most beautiful, rich textures. This is what got me most excited’ said Lenore.

Vrou Vrou Facts
The Vrou Throw is woven from Southern African grown cotton on our wide width Dornier loom at the new Mungo Mill in Plettenberg Bay.
The Vrou Throw is technically a full-sized blanket, made to cover an entire bed.
The classic waffle weave has a cellular structure which gives the Vrou a chunky body and texture. The pure cotton yarn ensures that it remains light and breathable, perfect for year-round luxury.
Each Vrou Throw is woven with 9 different coloured yarns. The warp features 5 colour variations and the weft features 4.
