THE QUIRKY EARTH WAY
We are a small family business based in the UK, who are passionate about creating timeless, sustainable wooden toys that children and parents love. We specialise in hand-crafted simple, tactile toys that are perfect for open-ended and imaginative play.
We want our toys to be as 'gentle to the earth' as possible. We go to great lengths to ensure that our creations are as sustainable & eco-friendly as possible.
It is so important to us that we are plastic-free and it's the very reason that we started this journey. As parents we fell in love with simple, wooden toys.
We only use sustainable materials to create our toys and always use FSC certified wood. In the UK we mostly use beech wood, however, our artisans in Sri Lanka use the 'retired' rubber trees. These trees are too old to be tapped for latex and would otherwise be destroyed.
We're proud to say that our packaging is 100% biodegradable and recyclable.
Our toys are handmade both the UK and in Sri Lanka. Our Sri Lankan artisans are certified by the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO) and staff work in safe and comfortable conditions according to the International Labour Organisation (ILO).
Our toys are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. None of our toys, finishes, or packaging contain any animal products or ingredients.
We have lots of toys in the pipeline. The natural world is a huge inspiration and features in most of our toys.
Less is more
Our range will include lots of beautiful, open-ended, tactile wooden toys. Simple in nature but awesome nevertheless!
We are working on a range of portable playmats to enable our toys to go mobile! They will be stylish & practical whilst keeping little ones happy and busy whilst travelling and when out and about.
