Includes: 3 pcs made from wool and liana wood
Papoose Earth Trees includes: 3 pieces. Dimensions: 16 to 26 cm height. These unique trees have natural liana wood with felt tops. The wood is natural and each piece is different. Set of 3 pieces.
Age Recommendation: 2+
Note: The trunks are made from natural wood. Wood is a living material that moves with temperature changes and humidity. Wood expands and contracts and cracking is a natural and normal part of that. Because of the grooves in the liana (a type of long-stemmed woody vine), the cracking on the trees is more occur along the grooves. We do not consider it a fault as it is natural for wood to behave this way.
Founded in 1991 by Australian Renske Carbone, Papoose Toys and Creative Wood Company under the umbrella of Colours of Australia produce natural toys and loose parts for open-ended creative play.
Working with natural materials, production takes place in small communities in Nepal, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. Pure wool felt toys and loose parts are made by hand at fairly traded rates of pay. The Creative Wood Company products are made primarily using waste from the furniture industry with wood supplied exclusively from wood traders meeting the SVLK Timber Legality Verification.
