We also have a variety of different hooding ranges at Boyriven available in a selection of different colours. Check out the specification table below and previous blogs which you may be interested in!

Contract Rivenhood:

Usually used on luxury sports cards, Contract Rivenhood is commonly referred to as Mohair hooding, it is a waterproof canvas-effect woven material. The cross woven fabric means it is one of the easiest to fit. This hooding material is 150cm wide, available in 6 colours and is supplied with either a black or fawn dobby backing.

Dobby lining is an extremely thin lining material often used on the underside of hooding material such as our Contract Rivenhood. It can be sold separately and available in either black or fawn. The material is 173cm wide and available in cut pieces or 25m rolls.

Duck Hooding:

Also known as double duck, it is the traditional material used for trimming the hoods of pre-war and vintage vehicles. This tightly-woven canvas is a watertight as well as flexible cotton-type hooding solution, ideal for keeping the wind and rain out of vintage Bentleys, Rolls Royces, Aston Martins, MGs and more.
