The wooden figures by Holztiger are shaped from the native maple and beech wood from forests in southern Germany. Holztiger sources wood from suppliers who are certified by the German government and adhere to sustainable management of their timber resources which creates the ability for the ecosystem to keep running indefinitely, fulfilling the needs of the present and future generations and maintaining economic viability without depleting natural resources. In the manufacturing process for the creation of wooden animals and wooden figures, Holztiger stamp the figures which are cut out with a saw. The toy craftsmen then smooth off the rough surfaces and edges. The wood is then primed and sanded one last time to its satin finish.
Holztiger artists will then individually hand-paint each figure with water paints which are not only environmentally and people friendly, they allow the natural grain of the wood to show through. The suppliers of paint products all conform to toy safety standards and are subjected to regular inspection. All paints, varnishes and wood stains are water-based and free from harmful and toxic solvents.
The final step in the toy manufacturing process is when the Holztiger logo is burnt into the wooden figure, then it is a trip to quality control to ensure that the finished toy meets the exacting standards before being released to the public.
