Award-winning Sustainable Toys

Rocking sheep toy

We are incredibly proud to announce that last week we were announced the winner of the Blue Patch ‘New Business’ award!

We’ve been finalists in a number of locally based awards but to date have always been runner-up (to other very worthy winners). This was our first time collecting the trophy and it was in a national competition!

Blue Patch is a sustainable marketplace for UK design, ethical fashion, eco-furniture, green gifts, organic & fair trade food. The annual Blue Patch awards celebrate all things about sustainability in business. You can see more about the awards and all the brilliant finalists here.

Sadly we were unable to attend the awards ceremony in London, so got the news the following morning. A great end to a busy week for us. We celebrated with what else, some Friday night woodworking and a beer.

Tinkebu is now just about 2 years old although has been a side-line for most of that time. Wins like this affirm that people recognise and support what we’re doing, and equally it re-ignites us to keep moving forward with the business.

Playful. Tactile. Purposeful.
