If you adore the great outdoors - then BOING UP YOUR LIFE!
BOING was inspired by the ropes my husband relied on for safety in so many outdoor sports he did in the 90’s.
He trekked in S.America, New Zealand, the Pyrenees and Scotland, ice climbed, abseiled, bungee jumped, rafted, water skied, paraglided and loved windsurfing so much he took this passion to every continent, but his big love was being on top of mountains. Amongst others, he scaled Venezuela’s highest mountain, Pico Bolivar at 5,000m, then Nevado Pisco in Northern Peru at 5,752m during which he missed a crevasse by a foot while popping to the loo during the night, so BOING could have disappeared into oblivion years before it eventually arrived.
Ropes were essential for most of these activities and he built up a sizeable collection of them - all tough, beautiful and tactile. He always felt these ropes could be turned into a colourful, simple and tactile outdoor bracelet with the right connecting clasp for a more extreme sports market in the UK. So that’s where I came in and in 2011 we worked on designing an engineered clasp that is effective, unfussy and attractive and importantly complements these characteristics in the ropes, June 2012 we launched - we felt so proud to breathe life into BOING.
BOING products are 100% UK handmade and designed in the UK. We are delighted to work very closely with some of the finest UK precision engineering companies and rope manufacturers in making our designs come to life. Every BOING bracelet is made by hand, polished and quality tested here in Berkshire by our BOING team before being shipped out to you. We thank you for buying one of our BOING products and welcome all feedback. We have worked tirelessly in constantly improving our designs to give a two year guarantee on all our products per the terms and conditions set out under the guarantee section on this website.
We also have achieved a fabulous reputation for top customer service and are proud and grateful for the large amount of positive unsolicited feedback we get which means a lot to us and have had some unusual requests over the years that we have always fulfilled. When you buy a BOING product we strongly encourage you to follow the product care instructions to maintain your product in top condition to maintain the guarantee. We are though always happy to give advice by phone or email if in any doubt.
We try to source most of our rope from the UK and are pretty successful in this regard with sailing rope – it helps being an island! Occasionally though, to ensure a great selection of climbing rope for you we need to go to the US or Western Europe where there are bigger mountains to buy authentic climbing rope from the world’s leading rope manufacturers. All rope is of top grade quality designed for sailing or climbing. We do also offer a grade A polypropylene rope which is clearly marked as our Softie range.
All sterling silver or gold items, including plated products are hallmarked in Goldsmiths Hall in London where they are tested and assayed with the 925 stamp or 18k mark as applicable.
At the heart of BOING is our Co-Founder Kerry. Not only passionate and creative, Kerry is a social butterfly making her role as Head of Sales and Marketing perfectly suited.
Many of the figures are co-ordinated by our other Co-Founder Billy, who also researches all sourcing - a safe pair of hands as you can see. Whilst he could once be found up a mountain or out at sea, he now enjoys causing mischief at BOING HQ!
Having been with BOING from the beginning, Charley is never without a smile. When she isn't tied up in masses of rope, she is out in full force on the hockey pitch.
