Preparation is key when it come to how Pislik Toys are created. Each piece of timber, which includes linden, cherry and beechwood is locally and sustainably sourced from the mountain regions of Czech Republic. For every tree that is cut, another one is planted to ensure the forests are regenerated and sustained which reduces the negative impact on the land and environment.
All of the timber used is air dried naturally - a technique which is not commonly used these days due to the fact that it takes over 3 years in total to complete.
Once they have had sufficient drying time, each piece is carefully scanned for imperfections and any pieces that are not suitable for use, as well as any off cuts are then sent to a local recycling depot where they are used by the local community for various other projects.
The purpose of this lengthy process is to avoid using machinery or chemicals during production and means that they end up with a higher quality, more easily workable wood that is also incredibly strong and sturdy.
