Lanka Kade

Fair trade wooden toy company Lanka Kade was founded in 1994, by business partners Upal and Diane. They met in Sri Lanka, whilst working for the Red Cross.

Since then Lanka Kade has grown to become an established business based in the heart of the UK specialising in the design, craft and supply of fair trade wooden toys and gifts. The distinctive range of educational toys offers both bright bold colours and natural wood finishes.

Lanka Kade toys are designed, in-house, with the aim to inspire learning through play aiding the development of language, picture, shape and colour recognition skills - and that's just the beginning! A lot of hard work goes into creating high standards of the handcrafted toys. This is why they are so very popular with parents and little ones, along with the bright colours and natural wood finishes.

The name Lanka Kade translates to 'The Sri Lankan Shop'.

Lanka Kade's aim is to reduce poverty through trade. They build long term sustainable trading partnerships that provide stability and protect local skills. Great pride is taken in having a thorough knowledge of the supply chain, which includes nine independent artisan groups, within Sri Lanka.
