Why we love Lanka Kade

Friday, 2 June 2017  |  Admin

Lanka Kade is one of our favourite toy suppliers, they were one of the first companies we even contacted about our idea to start a new business.  Beautiful Fair Trade toys made from sustainable wood.  

These wooden toys help stimulate little one's imaginations and learn through playing. We love the bright and vibrant colours Lanka Kade use and all Lanka Kade toys are hand painted adding to the toy's character.  

Lanka Kade works with small producers in Sri Lanka providing real opportunities to real people to help them provide not only for themselves but also for their families. It's all about good working conditions and fair wages so that people can provide without being exploited. Here is Karunawathi hand painting the skittles and with her daughter.


                 


As Lanka Kade has evolved over the last 20 years they aim to keep building long term relationships and protecting local skills also whilst providing stability. The also encourage the producer's growth and independence by offering interest-free loans, training and support to help them grow.
