responsibly produced

At Makii, we strive to running our company in the most responsible way. Checking the materials’ source, producing as local as possible, making sure working conditions are in order and compensating our energy-use; we’re trying our best to minimise our carbon footprint and maximise the transparency in regards to production of our company as a whole.

Wooden toy

For our wooden toys collection, we purchase wood from the Dutch Forestry Foundation (Staatsbosbeheer), an organisation which responsibly maintains most of the Dutch forests.

The wooden animals are then crafted from the wood in a socially responsible way by collaborating with Dutch sheltered and prison workshops.


Most of our paper-based products are being produced in factories that re-use water- and energy flows. The majority of our collection is printed in the Netherlands and Germany, using FSC certified paper and bio-inks.

In the future, we’d like to collaborate with socially responsible printers that provide work for people with poor job prospects.

Makii projects
comeback story

Makii wishes a green future for the new generation.

That’s why, in addition to producing as locally and responsibly as we can, we donate 1% of our annual turnover to Sumthing. Their aim is to restore more nature than we lose every year, by supporting many different projects around the world: from restoring kelp forests in Portugal, to removing plastic from the Ganges and planting trees in Greece.

What makes Sumthing so special is that you can track very specifically how and where your donation makes a difference for our planet. Discover below which projects we have already contributed to! PENG!


We see the responsible way of producing as a continuous journey. We’ll update this page every now and then with new insights.

If you have any questions or remarks, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have!
