As our world continues to evolve and we gain a greater understanding of some of the unhealthy things we humans have done and the impact they’ve had, a movement towards environmentally conscious products has begun. Plastic-free toys and toys made out of conscious materials aren’t new to the marketing world, but more and more parents are looking for items that don’t just have minimal impact on the environment their little ones are growing up in but also ones that are going to last and help their children’s imaginations grow.
The brand Wigiwama began through a desire to create a playful and fun interior space for children and has evolved from 2016 to the line of products you see today. With mindful living also being a key aspect of design, the thought of each product isn’t just about how these products fit into daily life and home interiors but also how long they last, where their materials are sourced and how this quality is reflected. This balance between design, nature and children being children ultimately inspired and grew this sustainable brand.
What you need to know is that Wigiwama products are still made locally to their original starting point in a homelike factory. Every supplier and manufacturer is carefully selected to ensure that they withhold the same standards and from the starting point of a product all the way to when it arrives at your doorstep, each step has been considered at great length. Wigiwama products are all about you as the customer, how they can be enjoyable, exciting and help your children grow whilst respecting the world for future generations.
Here are a few of our favourite products and the reasons why they meet our high standards!
