About The Brand: Grapat is a small family project that materialized from leaving the city to live in a natural environment. Their toys come without instructions allowing free play and maximized use of imagination. They are handmade in their small family-owned workshop in the hills of the Pyrenean mountains of Catalunya
Grapat creates open-ended toys that favor free and autonomous play. Their only premise is to let children play slowly without time limits. They utilize materials that encourage, invite, and stimulate creativity. Their products are made following traditional processes in the old way using natural dyes that let the wood veins be seen and vibrant colored waxes and oils that slightly shine.
The wood used for Grapat toys (primarily beech and birch) comes from sustainable forests. Wood is the source that inspires the workshop daily. It is robust, soft and hard, it is warm, it sounds good and it smells good.
The dyes are based on water and non-toxic: they allow the grain of the wood to show through, bringing children into closer contact with nature. The finishes are made with waxes and oils of vegetable origin. The oils can have a strong aroma at first, but it loses it within a few days. Each piece is unique, each one is painted by hand. And natural imperfections are recognized as being part of the natural wood: it is beautiful and makes the material even more valuable.
For care or cleaning of the parts, wipe with a damp cloth and dry immediately.
