If we were to have a look at everything that the wonderful Djeco produce, this Brand Spotlight blog would be far too long! Instead, we’re just going to have a look at what they’re famous for: their fantastic children’s arts and crafts supplies! Djeco are based in Paris, where their incredibly talented creative team dream up new and exciting products. Nothing is outsourced with Djeco; absolutely everything is designed in this office. In fact, it can often take up to a year to get from a basic idea to a finished product, but every member of the team simply loves the whole process. We also love Djeco’s dedication to ensuring that all of their arts and crafts supplies are of the utmost highest quality. As well as rigorously testing all of their products to make sure that they meet Djeco’s own requirements, they also make sure that each item meets all the necessary safety requirements. They also make sure that every item is of the absolute highest standard. What’s truly great about Djeco’s arts and craft supplies is that all of their kits are actually based on designs from incredibly talented illustrators. This is why I simply love their Exquiste Orient colouring workshop. Featuring beautiful artwork from French designer Charlotte Gastaut, it’s so much prettier than any colouring book that I ever had as a child. And, like all of Djeco’s art kits, it comes wonderfully presented in a hard box, making it perfect for a gift. As well as simple colouring kits, Djeco even branches out into kits using art techniques such as monotyping paper craft and even using materials such as glitter and sand, like in their Ethnic Masks kit. We think that these are fantastic as they really spark children’s imaginations and give them artistic skills that they can use again and again on other projects. On the other hand, if you’re just looking for some high quality children’s arts and crafts supplies, Djeco have you covered there, too. Whether it’s finger paint for younger children or watercolour pencils for the older ones, you can be sure that you’ll be getting bright, bold colours and materials that will last. We really love Djeco here at Bird Kids, so the next time you’re looking for an arty gift for a creative child or some materials to complete an arts and crafts project, give Djeco a try! We promise you won’t be disappointed and, like us, you’ll be a fan for life!
