About us

Wholesale Fabric Supplier

What began as a single Durban fabric store owned by the Danka family is today a preferred supplier to hospitality establishments throughout Southern Africa, and abroad. We exceed the requirements of affirmative procurement policies in both the private and public sectors, making UG Fabrics an ideal candidate for BEE contracts in the décor industry. To date, we’ve fulfilled major contracts with the hotel and leisure industries, providing stylish and durable upholstery and soft furnishing solutions that are also cost-effective.


Promoting Economic Transformation

The U&G Group embraces black economic empowerment – it’s in our DNA! We’re proud to serve as an industry standard of excellence in promoting the aims and objectives of black economic empowerment in South Africa.


The U&G Group was awarded the esteemed Impumelelo Empowerment Certificate for our contribution to BBBEE empowerment and transformation


We’re a wholly owned and managed black fabric company, and the largest black-owned enterprise in the category of soft furnishing fabrics in South Africa. We’ve been a pioneer in promoting black economic transformation in the country, ranking in the top two companies in our industry. We satisfy all the criteria set out in the Black Economic Empowerment Act No. 53 of 2003, and promote fair labour standards and skills development for all our employees. Our long tradition of actively supporting and encouraging small business development has resulted in an existing support programme which serves the needs of 350 small businesses in the upholstery and furniture manufacturing sectors across South Africa.
