Lanka Kade – Wooden Characters
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’.
Since 1994, 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 for children. Our distinctive range of educational toys offers both bright bold colours and natural wood finishes.
