"Great things are brought together by a series of small things." - Vincent van Gogh
Each of our Quiet Books goes through an elaborate manufacturing process that requires many creative minds and many experienced hands. We are an entire team that ensures that our ideas, fabrics, buttons and trims are ultimately turned into a long-lasting product that inspires children to learn creatively, trains their senses and takes them on a playful journey of discovery.
This is how our production works:
- We come up with something new for each Quiet Book. After extensive brainstorming and initial sketches, the detailed design is created by our creative team.
- The next step is the production of a prototype, through which we find out which fabrics and basic materials (Velcro, buttons, zippers, etc.) we need for the final product. A special focus is placed on toy safety - after all, all our Quiet Books must not only meet our own high quality standards, but also the strict requirements according to the European EN 71 toy standard.
- In our workshop in India, all fabrics are first carefully pre-washed and the individual materials sorted. Then all the large and small pieces are cut out, up to 250 pieces per book.
- Our seamstresses carefully sew every single detail by hand. The last step is to assemble the pages and the book is ready to be shipped to our warehouse in Germany.
We offer our seamstresses good and flexible working conditions and treat them with great respect, because a good working atmosphere is the prerequisite for a long-term cooperation. Creativity thrives on freedom, which is also important to us in the production of our Quiet Books. Our seamstresses not only put a lot of experience, but also a lot of care and attention to detail into each of our products. Small variations, be it the choice of fabric for an appliqué, the number of stitches or the shape of a button, make each of our Quiet Books a very special and unique piece.
Big things are brought together by a series of small things. We are convinced that it is exactly these small things, all the many steps, the love for details, colours and materials, the interaction of many creative people, that make you feel you are holding something very special in your hands when you buy one of our handmade Quiet Books.
