We would like to introduce the latest brand addition to the Pure Panda family, Lanka Kade.
Holding a very strong ethos for Fair Trade products, Lanka Kade is dedicated in ensuring that all of its workers are treated fairly and given the opportunities to provide for themselves and their families. Translating as “the Sri Lankan shop”, Lanka Kade was started by Diana and Upul who after leaving Sri Lanka, didn’t want to lose contact with the country they loved. Setting up a small import business, Diane and Upul were able to speak to Sri Lankans in their native language, allowing them to understand all issues from supply to pricing. By setting up a strong business in the UK, Lanka Kade was able to reinvest profits back into the company and supply stability to their Sri Lankan producers and employees.
Built on respect, Lanka Kade always aims to drive the business in the right direction, always paying their producers a fair price for their service. Products are made by family enterprises in Sri Lanka, providing continual employment for producers throughout the year and encourage producers to maintain a safe working environment with equal opportunities and good pay. All wood used to make the wooden toys and gifts is responsibility sourced and each piece is hand crafted by true artisans and designed with your child’s needs in mind. Ensuring that the finished article is not only a great fun toy for your child, but also passes down the ethos of Fair Trade and integrity.
We are so proud to be able to make Lanka Kade available to our customers. From farm animal toys to complex puzzles, each toy has gone through a rigorous process to ensure that the finished design is functional and beautiful. Keeping in mind the key developmental exercises that will provide fun whilst learning, these toys are simply beautiful. Made from responsibly sourced wood and not plastic, Lanka Kade’s toys are safe and enjoyable.
