Almost all our collaborators are of proximity and they are located in Catalunya. In this way we can know about your way of working and ensure the working conditions of your workers.
The wood we use comes from sustainable forests. Wood is the source that inspires us daily. It is robust, soft and hard, it is warm, it sounds good and it smells good.

PEFC - Sustainable Wood Policy
COMMITMENT DECLARATION OF PEFC CUSTODY
GRAPAT Management has decided to implement a Chain of Custody Management System in accordance with the requirements of the international standard PEFC-ST 2002: 2013, Chain of Custody of Forest Products for products manufactured and marketed by the company.

The PEFC chain of custody implemented system describes all the management and production requirements for the control of the chain of custody, labeling and sale of PEFC certified products, and involves the evaluation of forest products from the tree to the final product, including all the stages of processing, transformation, manufacturing and handling, to verify that the wood that is used comes from a properly managed forest.

Management puts at the disposition of the system all the human and material resources necessary to fulfill these marked goals.

Management declares its commitment to comply with the social and occupational health and safety requirements based on the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, 1998, specifically:

  • Does not prevent workers from associating freely, choosing their representatives, or negotiating collectively with the company
  • Does not use forced labor
  • Does not use the hiring of workers below the legal minimum age of 15 years, or below the compulsory school age, if this is higher
  • Does not prevent equal opportunities and treatment of workers
  • Working conditions do not endanger the safety or health of workers

The dyes are based on water and non-toxic that comply with the European safety regulations of the Toy EN / 71-3: 2014 + A1: 2014 / 2013. Working with dyes and not with acrylic paints allows us to continue having contact with the wood who is noble and kind. The drawing of the vein, its nuances and touches, its own characteristics. The dye does not jump from the wood when it falls to the ground or when time passes because it penetrates deep inside the piece.
Sometimes it can happen that by an excess of pigments some piece loses some color when coming in contact with the saliva, this is not a problem, they are absolutely safe and non-toxic.
We work the color with true affection, the tones, how they degrade, how they change. Color comes from nature and connects us to it: the seasons, the changes of climate, in the sunlight. In our materials yellow, or green never go alone, always go with their set, yellow just for us would not make sense. The color also connects us to the emotions and to all that happens to us inside.
Our workshop is located in the countryside, and being close to nature can make some tones and colours have variations. Depending on the humidity or if there is wind the dye can impregnate one way or another in the wood.
The finishes are made with waxes and oils of vegetable origin. The oils can have a strong aroma at first, but it loses it with the days. Enjoy the smell!
Each piece that passes through our hands is unique, each one is painted by hand. We understand the “imperfections” of wood as characteristics that make each piece unique. It is beautiful and makes the material even more valuable.

For care or cleaning of the parts, they must be in a dry place, can be wiped with a damp cloth and dry immediately. The pieces should not be submerged in water nor should disinfectant be used.
If small marks appear in the pieces over time it will mean that the material has fulfilled its function of play, and from here we celebrate it. We ourselves have wrinkles and marks of life with the passage of time, this is life itself.
The cloth bags that are included in some of the products come from big companies that discard material when they find a small defect. As we produce the bags by hand we can take advantage of them by removing those defects and giving them a second life. The fabrics vary and can not match with the photos of the products.
From 2019 we have eliminated 100% the use of plastic from our packaging. So we can contribute to the reduction of waste on the planet.
We collaborate with foundations that take care of people with psychic difficulties. They help us to develop packaging tasks.
The workshop is structured according to the TEAL philosophy. We work from self-management and shared authority. Our structure is not pyramidal.
Family conciliation with work is a topic that we take special care of. The schedule of each employee is adapted to their personal needs.
We work according to the requirements of the SA800 standard.
All our materials comply with the safety regulations of the EN71-1/2/3
