He says, “This is the place where one can find true inspiration for new things in the intimate context of a dynamic neighborhood, shaped by the artists and gallerists who first lived there.” To capture the true essence of Soho, both John and Eclipse had a clear vision: they needed to have a rich fabric texture to adequately reflect the “rough” charm of Soho (its cobbled stoned streets, iron-casts) and its unique architecture—therefore, they didn’t want any printed patterns.
For example, the Mooie fabric has beautiful horizontal bands that were directly inspired by the graphic architecture of Soho fire escapes.
Each fabric is available in two versions: a light filtering version and a room-darkening version for more restful sleep. They’ve even designed extra wide fabrics (up to 114″) to avoid ugly seams with large windows! Hurrah! The fabrics are 100% PVC-Free, Halogene-Free and Oeko-Tex certified, so you can be sure they’re safe. They also take the environment very seriously—the BOI range addresses environmental concerns across 8 criteria, including manufacturing and recyclability.
BOI fabrics are now available in the US, Latin America, Asia Pacific and Europe.
