Introducing Boon & Up; an exciting new venture from the women weavers of the Dagaaba region in the remote far northwest of Ghana.
Boon & Up produce a range of beautiful homeware products carefully created in Ghana. Their throws, cushions, blankets and rugs have all been expertly handwoven by a collective of women weavers using sustainable materials. The cotton that goes into their throws and cushion covers is 100% sustainable cotton grown by smallholder African farmers under the ‘Cotton made in Africa’ initiative, the wool for all Boon & Up blankets and rugs is surplus wool sourced from mills in north England.
Boon & Up have set out from the start to create attractive and high quality pieces and products, and by remaining authentic to tradition, while adapting the weavers’ designs for a new market, the project 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 employment opportunities in the district.
