Brin d'Ours

Brin d’Ours is the creator of handmade, sustainable wooden animals and toys with modern charming designs. The signature harmonious simple yet poetic shapes, clean lines and soft colours are not only attractive to children, but also inspire creativity and imagination in play, and bring a touch of warmth and sweetness as decor to homes.

Each piece is 100% handmade in their workshop in Alsace, France, using untreated wood that are sustainably sourced locally. Each shaped with smoothed edges, and hand-painted with non-toxic paints derived from vegetables and minerals, giving a soft and warm colour that still allow the natural wood grain to shine through. All toys are CE certified to toy safety.

Conscious about limiting impact to the environment, Brin d’Ours operates using 100% French production, from design to debarking the timber to manufacturing to packaging, everything is done in one place and all materials are plastic-free.

Brand Story - Brin d'Ours

Founded in 2017 by Marie-Charlotte and Daniel, who met at University when they both studied art. Brin d’Ours was born with the passion to create eco-friendly, natural wooden toys that are modern and timeless. A whimsical world of nature with animals and landscapes are created to inspire children to explore the nature, and use their creativity and imagination when playing with them.

Focusing on the harmony between shapes and colours, Brin d’Ours creates toys with a signature touch of poetry and softness — with pure and simple shapes, clean lines, soft colours — these charming and sweet designs are appealing to children, yet leaving lots of room for their imagination to play and create their own stories with them.

The core values of operating the company are to respect and limit impact to our environment, including using all natural materials, 100% French production, and recycled packaging.
