All Boon & Up fabric is handwoven to a width of 110cm, and is 100% combed cotton, hand-grown by smallholder African farmers. Boon & Up fabric is tough, it passes 45,000 rubs on the Martindale test, however due to the way it is woven on traditional looms we highly recommend that our fabric is knit backed for any upholstery projects. This is a relatively inexpensive process, please get in touch with us for recommendations of companies that perform this task in your region.

Boon & Up fabric has also passed the flammability ‘cigarette test’ (BS5852:Part 1:1979:Source 0).



All our fabrics tell a story.

Our traditional patterns refer to local customs or an aspect of the savannah landscape of north west Ghana.

When a child is born in the Dagaaba region the community will be called upon to provide a name. Deliberation will take a while as the baby’s character develops and weeks will pass before a suitable name is chosen. Annamala means ‘it shall be well’, and it’s the name of our Production Assistant’s new baby girl. This traditional pattern, originally based on the plumage of the guineafowl, is named in her honour.
