Fair trade wooden toy company Lanka Kade was founded in 1994 when business partners Upul and Diane returned to the UK having met in Sri Lanka whilst working for the Red Cross. They did not want to lose contact with the country and the people they both love, therefore they set up a small import business to maintain links with Sri Lanka.
The name Lanka Kade translates to ‘The Sri Lankan Shop’.
Twenty years on, Lanka Kade is an established business based in the heart of the UK specialising in the design, craft and supply of fair trade wooden toys and gifts for children. Our distinctive range of educational toys offers both bright bold colours and natural wood finishes.
We are passionate about creating quality, educational toys that inspire children to learn through play. Our distinctive range offers both bright, bold colours and natural wood finishes. All of our toys are exclusively designed in-house in the UK and handcrafted by skilled artisans in Sri Lanka.
Their aim is to reduce poverty through trade, by building long term sustainable trading partnerships that provide stability and protect local skills. They also offer advice, training and interest free loans to support business development.
Their distinctive range of educational toys offers both bright, bold colours and natural wood finishes. Designed to inspire learning through play, Lanka Kade toys aid the development of language, picture, shape and colour recognition skills to name a few.
