回憶兒時,我們是玩什麼長大的?在田野中抓蝴蝶,抑或是在冷氣房裡玩扮家家酒?其實不管是哪一種,都反映了我們與生俱來的生活環境與軌跡。然而在高科技的時代,仍有人致力將森林生活融入兒童的生活回憶中——俄羅斯木玩品牌Raduga Grëz,清淺的大地色,獨一無二的手感,一眼瞬間,彷彿能聞到森林清新的香氣。

Raduga Grez is my ikigai. I love children, but playing with them is not easy for me, so I make toys for adults to enjoy playing with children. ⠀ ♥️ This year's collection was popular. Now I feel like a rock star who released the first successful album and we need not to screw it up. ⠀ 🥛We won the prize for the best stand from the @milk_magazine and received a warm welcome at the exhibition @iloveplaytime and @maisonetobjet. Then my impostor syndrome began to go away. ⠀ 📦 I cried when a 200 kg parcel to France got up without explanation at customs, when another parcel went to the wrong Portland in America. I fought and resolved these situations. Our work is toys, a lot of documents and cooperation with contractors. ⠀ 👨🏻‍🌾I doubled our production in size, and now we have three times as many employees. But this is more of a challenge for me. For example, every summer I persuade joiners to make toys instead of running a garden. They are very simple people.⠀ 🛒We took more orders than we could do and delayed some in November. Someone understood, and someone wrote that we let them down very much. ⠀ We had the ebbs and flows. Now I understand that each bump is a trampoline for jumping up. I will continue to work and I have so many ideas for implementation and I have something to say next year. Thanks to every family in which our toys live and to every store that brings our toys to their places.🙏🏻 Happy new year!

這個品牌,是由Evgenil和Inna這對夫婦所創始,養育3個孩子的他們,帶著創造力與開放的心態,創造了這個充滿生命力的家庭手工藝品牌。「Toy as Art」是他們所堅持的理念,透過遊戲來體驗自然與人文藝術間的連結,因此每一組木玩,都是從他們生活周遭的自然環境汲取靈感,化為星星、森林、彩虹、石頭⋯⋯等形狀不一的玩具,而每一個零件,都能組合出獨一無二的世界,溫柔而充滿創意的畫面,模糊了藝術與童玩的邊界,甚至可以當作一般家飾擺設,也能激起大人內心柔軟而豐富的童心。

Raduga Grëz的木造童玩,是由一間祖傳三代的俄羅斯娃娃工廠所製作,從源頭把關,精挑細選原木、切割、風乾、製作、上漆到包裝,不假手他人。由於是手工製作,且為了傳遞大自然最真實的面貌,所以每一組成品,都保留著不同的木頭紋理,讓人與木頭間產生更多想像互動,但也因為這樣費工,所以生產的量自然以少量出產為主。

尊重自然環境與人,是Raduga Grëz重要的品牌精髓,因此不僅控制木材選擇,所有產品也捨棄一般塗料,而是使用無毒水性漆,包裝也是採用紙板和棉布,盡可能地減少對人和環境的傷害。生活在都市叢林久了,也想讓內在柔軟下來嗎?Raduga Grëz的木玩,也許是不錯的選擇。
