Lanka Kade (UK) Ltd

Fair trade wooden toy company Lanka Kade was founded in 1994 when business partners 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, and set up a small import business to maintain links with Sri Lanka. The company name, Lanka Kade, translates to ‘The Sri Lankan Shop’.

Since 1994, Lanka Kade has grown to become 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. Its distinctive range offers both bright, bold colours and natural wood finishes. All of its toys are exclusively designed in-house in the UK and handcrafted by skilled artisans in Sri Lanka.

It is passionate about creating quality, educational toys that inspire children to learn through play. Its aim is to reduce poverty through trade, building long term sustainable trading partnerships that provide stability and protect local skills. It offers advice, training and interest free loans to support business development.
