Guineu Oak is a small family business based in in the valley of Montseny, Catalunya, Spain
Cisco, the third generation of carpenters in his family, has been building furniture all his life. After becoming a father he felt inspired to make toys for his daughter.
It began when Cisco started carving a doll out of a stick that he and his daughter had found in the forest during one of their daily walks. Together they built tiny shacks out of the logs and leaves they collected. And so, the idea of Guineuoak was born: (guineu means fox in Catalan) a lively and versatile toy that inspires parents and kids to participate in the game.
The toys are carefully and individually handmade by Cisco, which makes each piece different and unique. His wife Violeta helps in the finishing of the pieces and the packaging design.
They make their own water dyes with soil and non-toxic plant-based pigments and create their own mixture of beeswax and almond oil to varnish the toys. This natural varnish gives the wood a soft and shiny natural finish, without using chemicals. Therefore, each piece is completely safe for children! Even for those little ones that like chewing on them!
Having complete control over the process means they are able to offer a sustainable, unique, durable quality toy that your little one will enjoy for a long time.
