About Lanka Kade

Fair trade wooden toy company Lanka Kade was founded in 1994 when husband and wife team, 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, therefore they set up a small import business to maintain links with Sri Lanka.

The name Lanka Kade translates to ‘The Sri Lankan Shop’.

Twenty years on, Lanka Kade is 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. Our distinctive range of educational toys offers both bright bold colours and natural wood finishes.

As we have evolved over the last twenty years our ethos has remained the same; to build long-term, sustainable trading partnerships that provide stability and protect local skills. We encourage our producer’s independence and growth at every level and offer interest-free loans, training and independent financial support to help them grow into independent businesses.

Lanka Kade has direct trading relationships with their producers, Upul travels to Sri Lanka regularly, working with their artisans to ensure fair trade working practices are met and maintained. Their commitment to their producers supports their growth and development, whilst ensuring their employees have a sense of job satisfaction and that their employment is valued. The producer groups offer their staff good rates of pay, equal opportunities and a safe working environment in coherence with the 10 Principles of Fair Trade.

At Lanka Kade, they comply with the internationally accepted 10 Principles of Fair Trade and they have been a proud and active member of BAFTS (The British Association of Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers) since 2001, with their Director Diane chairing the board for a couple of years.
