First Ribbons

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).

Description

All our fabrics tell a story.

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

First light reveals the women of the household, usually with a broom made of grasses in their hand, sweeping and cleaning as the inky blue-black of the African night gives way to the first rays and filtering white light of a brand new day.
