Lanka Kade

Fair trade wooden toy company Lanka Kade was founded in 1994 when husband and wife team, 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’.  Twenty years on, Lanka Kade is 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. Their distinctive range of educational toys offers both bright bold colours and natural wood finishes.

They are passionate about creating quality, educational toys that inspire children to learn through play.  All of their toys are exclusively designed in-house in the UK and handcrafted by skilled artisans in Sri Lanka.  Lanka Kade’s aim is to reduce poverty through trade. They build long term sustainable trading partnerships that provide stability and protect local skills. They offer advice, training and interest free loans to support business development.
