The Wood Garden

Alright, so I'll admit that Canadian based company The Wood Garden might not exactly fall into the 'organic fabric' category, but what about the 'organic timber' category?

I love their work and think it's well worth taking the time to have a look. Here are a few of my favourites:

The Wood Garden emphasise the aesthetic and health benefits of unique, hand-made toys over their more mass produced, toxic counterparts. The Wood Garden make teethers, rattles, and toys (including pull-along grasshoppers; farmyard and woodland animal trios; stacking rings; and a range of vehicles). To create their toys The Wood Garden pride themselves in using only 'sustainably harvested' or 'reclaimed' timbers. To complete their creations they finish them with an organic flaxseed oil.

What more could anyone want?


  1. Love those wooden toys! Wooden ones are so much better. Hey - I saw your post about modern organic fabrics and wanted to let you know I've created some as well...if you'd like to take a look I'd be so pleased :). Have a great day!


  2. Hey Emily,

    I've just had a browse through your shop and am VERY impressed with your fun fabrics. They'd be perfect for children's accessories!

    Thanks for letting me know about them.

  3. Love the grasshopper and wooden baby rattles! How nicely finished they are.
