About Grapat -
Grapat are a Spanish, family run brand that started off as a small project, that was inspired by taking a shift from the high stress and detachment of city life, to the more relaxed and connected natural environment. Enamored and inspired by their daughters open ended play and expansive imagination, Jordi and Casiana started to create simple, timeless toys that enhance the magic of the nature around us, with endless uses that promote open, creative play, that is not influenced by any preconceived ideas. Grapat's wide range of stunning toys are crafted from locally sourced, natural materials that are lovingly designed with the utmost care and caution, to create these magical items that can stay in the family for generations to come.
