Wooden ducks from the Original Wooden Duck Company, DCUK, come with an ethical background. The founders of the company were inspired by a rather comical Indian Runner Duck in an Indonesian village. The idea of creating wooden ducks, based on the shape of the iconic Indian runner, was born!
The company uses sustainable bamboo which is carved by hand in Indonesia, using locally harvested bamboo roots and offcuts that would otherwise be wasted. The makers of these charming wooden ducks and birds live in two Indonesian villages, thus DCUK helps to keep traditional skills alive whilst providing work for local people.
