Myriad specialises in hand-crafted organically shaped natural wooden toys, plant dye art materials, craft supplies, books and musical instruments.
Their range is produced with reverence for the environment and the child.
If you are familiar with the works of Rudolf Steiner and want to bring this emphasis into your home, then Myriad is an Aladins Cave of products. All their toys encourage creative and imaginative play, are safe, non toxic, made from natural materials and built to last.
The wood used for their products comes from European forest plantations where by-products are either recycled or used for heating. The colours used for their toys are water-based and finished with natural oil.
The majority of products in their catalogue are made in Western Europe by people paid a fair wage for their skills, working in clean and safe environments.
They have some gorgeous new products to share for Easter. Some of my favourites are pictured here. The flower fairy finger puppets, floppy eared organic cotton hare filled with sheep’s wool, hand sewn woollen felt easter figures and magnolia blossom bud would all be welcome in my house this Easter!
Myriad are also selling craft kits and books for creating a beautiful nature table. Products include a plant pigment based egg dye kit. A set of five harmonious colours will each dye 5 eggs. A rabbit knitting kit includes instructions, stuffing wool and organic, plant dyed knitting wool.
