GRAPAT provides material without instructions, open-ended and favours free and autonomous play. Our only premise is to let children play, slowly, without time limits. We suggest material that encourages, invites and stimulates the creation of several fantastic, realistic and invented little worlds. It is made following traditional processes, in the old way, with thick soft raw materials, natural dyes which let the wood veins be seen and vibrant coloured waxes and oils that slightly shine. The products are painted by hand, homemade, surrounded by land, fire, rivers and many children nearby, who inspire us daily.
Grapat creations are produced according to traditional manufacturing processes and with locally sourced materials. The wood comes from sustainable forests and has the certification PEFC 14-35-00485
