Our range of wooden toys are handmade by artisans using techniques that have been passed down from one generation to the next for over 200 years!
These toys are crafted using sustainably grown wood and coloured with natural non-toxic dyes derived from plant-based sources such as turmeric, indigo, acacia tree extract etc mixed with lac – a natural resin. To know more about this traditional art form, read our blog article or have a look at this short video.
Being 100% natural, they’re a much safer choice for kids to play with as all parents know there isn’t much that escapes the mouths of toddlers and young children! They are also much kinder to our environment.
Their bright colours and tactile nature encourage children to use their imagination and creativity without being influenced by the kind of sounds commonly found in battery operated toys.
Needless to say, all of these toys comply with international toy safety standards – CE and ASTM.
In our endeavour to bring high quality handmade wooden toys which only use organic natural dyes and sustainable wood sources, we are proud to present the creations of artisans from the world famous “Land of Toys” – Channapatna in the south of India.
Our production partner is a fully signed up member of the World Fair Trade Organisation, who not only assist artisans and worker co-operatives to develop and market high quality products but also support workers’ skill development and ensures access to health and education facilities.
