Sustainable and fair trade production
Lanka Kade started up in 1994 when business partners Upul and Diane finished working together for the Red Cross in Sri Lanka and wanted to keep their connection strong. They came up with the idea of maintaining their links with the communities they got to know in Sri Lanka. They set up a small business importing high quality design and craft products, as well as toys, from Sri Lanka to the UK - and all under a fair trade model. Lanka Kade is not only all about sustainable production but also about helping communities in Sri Lanka develop their own businesses with financial support and training.
Educational, engaging and fun
The results of this process have been excellent. Take a look through the range of fairtrade toys and you will see that Lanka Kade have offered up a bold and distinctive array of creative gifts that would be engaging and fun for kids. The colours are rich and striking. The designs have also been put together so as to be educational, where teaching can take place through the enjoyable act of play. These toys have been crafted so that they help develop language, picture, shape and colour recognition skills - all whilst offering hours of enjoyable playtime!
Ethical company, characterful toys
The reason why we love Lanka Kade so much is that they are creating high quality products, but doing it the right way. Their fair trade policy is not just about good payment, but also about creating opportunities, showing full transparency, and doing things in the best possible way for the environment. It is this integrity that the company has when it comes to the constant refining of their practices which sets them apart. And, on top of all that, through these processes they are able to present some bright, fun and educational toys!
