River Crossing Leaf

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.

The Dagaaba people live in both Ghana and Burkina Faso and are separated by the Volta River. Since time immemorial politicians have been promising a bridge, but for now the 50 metre crossing is made by dugout canoes, and market traders and travellers will heap their goods into the wobbly craft and paddle across.
