Discover the extraordinary story of a Dutch antique dealer who dreamt of building a fortified castle with his own bare hands... This human and architectural adventure began fifty years ago, and led to the birth of the iconic KAPLA plank that inspired millions of budding builders throughout the world. KAPLA exclusively use Landes pine from sustainably managed forests of the South-West of France. The wood is natural and untreated, and the coloured planks are dyed using food-grade colouring to ensure safe play. Their fabrication process includes a series of strict checks and standards, as well as a final manual sorting, to provide you with quality planks that will last for years.
