We have selected our suppliers on the basis of their reliability, high-quality work standards and strong commitment to Social and Environmental Responsibility (SER).
Our characters made of organic cotton are sewn by women working in a reintegration workshop in Calcutta, India. The seamstresses’ income and working conditions meet international standards and the workers benefit from professional guidance.
The prototypes of our wooden toys were also made in a reintegration workshop ̶ close to Grenoble (France) this time ̶ whose workers come from disadvantaged groups and benefit from social (health, mobility, accommodation, finance) and vocational (project development, job discovery, training, etc...) individual support.
Following this stage, our wooden toys started being produced in a company located in Transylvania, Romania (an EU member country), located 1850 kilometres from our offices ̶ that is to say twice the distance between us and Calais. The 25 workshop employees all benefit from social security and free healthcare and their income is higher (mainly) or equals to the legal minimum wage. They are regularly trained and an audit and safety training company visits the workshop four times per year. To make our products these cabinet makers use FSC certified (from responsibly managed forests) beech wood and watercolours. The wood waste from the workshop is used as fuel in the boiler room or is compacted and sold to heat other companies/households. This cabinet-making workshop makes high-quality items and is one of our key partners.
