About the wood
We only use untreated solid wood, mostly from replanting that is either from Central Europe or local.
White poplar is light and compact, therefore it is well suited for toys and furniture for children.
As well as spruce, cypress, maple, beech, cherry, mulberry, juniper and walnut depending on its use.
The generation takes place with traditional woodworking tools, manually operated and not numerically controlled.
After the coloring with brushes we apply a base and finishing using only extra de-waxed shellac and benzoe gum in clear alcohol. These are two nontoxic resins that are also used in foods and pharmaceuticals.
For objects that are not colored we use cold pressed linseed oil at 100% or
water based paint that is specific to toys and furniture by rule of law EU DIN 71/3.
The glues we use are vinyls without formaldehyde that are specific and certified for toys.
For the kitchen utensils we use glues that are specifically used for contact with foods.
The colors most suitable to the living quality of wood are natural earth pigments and non-toxic vegetable extracts.
