Quality living materials.
Toys have to be something you want to take care of, something to protect so that it will not be damaged. Children develop their relationship to the world in the items they play with. Allowing children to play with living materials, materials with life that need to be taken care of can help our children to grow up in a world worth taking care of!
A toy is pedagogic so far as it stimulates the fantasy and the creativity. It must cultivate in a child, an appreciation of beauty and convey an impression or knowledge about the world. Debresks’ intention is to contribute to a balance and harmony between the different senses and the intellect of the growing child, when it plays with the smoothly shaped, natural colour wooden toys.
Wear and tear and throw away
Finally Debresk’s aim is to contribute to a world where less “wear and tear and throw away” culture reigns, with its environmental and human destruction. They hope and predict that mass produced cheap plastic toys in the long run will disappear out of the trade.
Debresk is the initials of the names of the founders, Joris Dekkers, Konrad Breidenstein and Anders Skånberg, who started the production of wooden toys in a ancient corn storehouse at Skäve biodynamic farm by Järna in 1987.
In the early 1980’s Joris and Konrad were pupils of Anders Skånberg in the Waldorf school, Örjanskolan, in Järna, some years after school they met again and started to make wooden toys together.
In 1996 Debresk was taken over by Auris AB and its owner Kjell Andersson.
