Boon & Up
From the women weavers of the Dagaaba region in the far north of Ghana.
Boon & Up present a collection of beautiful homeware products handmade in Ghana for the UK market. Our throws, cushions, blankets and rugs have all been expertly woven by Dagaaba women weavers using traditional handlooms and sustainable materials. Boon & Up throws and cushion covers are made from 100% sustainable cotton grown by smallholder African farmers under the ‘Cotton made in Africa’ initiative, the wool for our blankets and rugs is surplus wool bought from mills in north England.
We strive to create sumptuous and unique pieces while remaining authentic to local tradition. By adapting our designs for a new market Boon & Up will bring much needed employment to this impoverished part of our world. In addition, 20% of profits will be invested in projects that will provide further job opportunities in the district.
