Grapat Seasons Round Platform LAST ONE
ONLY SHIPS TO NZ AND AUS
Having watched many of our customers enjoy the Grapat Perpetual Calendar, Honeybee's very own Melissa dreamed up the concept for a platform on which the Calendar could sit. This vision was built upon by the wonderful creative team of Casiana and Jordi of Grapat, and the Seasonal Platform was born.
The platform can be used in many ways:
as addition to the perpetual calendar adding the additional seasons element to the calendar in line with the months of the year;
as a base for learning about the seasons of the year at home;
turn it over to use it as a natural play base or a blank canvas for building mandalas!!
Age group: 3 and above
The wood we use comes from sustainable forests. We use beech and birch. Wood is the source that inspires us daily. It is robust, soft and hard, it is warm, it sounds good and it smells good.
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, no problem, they are absolutely safe and non-toxic.
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. We love it!
Each piece that passes through our hands is unique, each one is painted by hand, with our hands. And since from Grapat we defend the value of nature, we accept imperfection, it is beautiful and makes the material even more valuable.
