Our wooden boards and animal figurines were made by our partner artisans based in the Northern Province of Rwanda, so you can be sure of their exceptional quality. And since they are handmade, expect some differences in size and pattern. The wood they work with is called "Entandrophragma excelsum", known for its high quality. It comes from the DRC where it is known as Libuyu wood.
Don't hesitate to buy them as gifts for your loved ones.
Woodcarving requires a great deal of precision and patience. It usually takes about six days to complete the work. The income generated will help our partner artisans cover their daily expenses, school fees and even teach this ancient skill and preserve the Rwandan tradition.
Never soak or immerse a wooden toy in water, it might swell, change shape and loose the colors.
- Use a mild soap and well rinse with a sponge, to clean painted or varnished wooden toys.
- Use white vinegar or apple cider diluted with water, to disinfect your wooden toys, then air dry or well wipe with a cloth.
