A Passion for Handmade Toys and Wooden Letters.

My shop grew out of a small wholesale business that I developed here in Australia in collaboration with a small family owned handicraft business that I help set up and run with friends in Sri Lanka. It all began back in 1999 when I was working and living in the South of Sri Lanka in a completely unrelated industry and by chance stumbled upon (or should I say into) a fledgling wooden puzzle and toy business with 2 friends who were trying to set up a small village based handicraft workshop. I helped them develop that vision with my business experience, finances and my designs for Australiana themed wooden puzzles and toys. After years of improving these designs and their quality I started to sell them on our local markets here in Byron Bay and that business amazingly developed into a fully fledged wholesale company that still exists today in the form of a very well known Australian Eco Friendly Handmade Wooden Educational Toy Company. As that business continued to grow so did my stress levels and In 2015 I decided it was time for a change of pace in my life and sold that business and went into semi retirement so I could spend more time with my family, young son and having fun. What I didnt stop or retire from was my passion and hobby of designing and producing wooden letters and these are the products that I am presenting here in my ETSY shop. I have designed, developed and currently produce 5 full sets of handmade wooden letter themes - Animal Letters, Fairy Letters, Dinosaur Letters, Dolphin Letters and Koala Letters. All these designs are totally unique and owned by my wooden letter business - Artiwood Wooden Letters. Im now working on my 6th full set of wooden letters and will be adding these letters and also name plaques to my range later in the year. Remembering a full set of wooden letters is actually 26 unique products in total so its not a quick process getting a set from the drawing board and into production. Although my friends in Sri Lanka have moved onto other things during the last 17 years they still help me to produce my letters which are all still handmade and hand painted in the same way they always were. In my picture gallery I am showing some of my original letter design drawings next to the finished items. I also visit the original handicraft workshop in the South of Sri Lanka 3 -4 times per year and show images of me working with the artisans to create our wonderful wooden letters. I hope you enjoy our products and please dont hesitate to contact me should you like to have any further information about my shop, business and its products.
