An instinctive understanding of the quality, safety and design of natural toys runs deep in the Kuch Family, which first developed and now designs and produces, the line of Korxx products. Acting creatively and responsibly, the Kuch family has worked with quality wood and natural products for many generations (since 1887). It has always been the family’s aim to develop products of the highest quality.
Sven, Patricia’s husband, grew up in that old carpenter family and in his childhood he used to play with cork blocks in the carpenter manufactory. In his childhood, Sven had already gotten to know the qualities of cork as it was used in the carpenter’s daily work. However, as a child, he realized very quickly that the cork grinding blocks the carpenters used, were much too fascinating for the mundane grinding purpose they served in carpentry. In his opinion, a much better use for these blocks was to create ridiculously tall, yet surprisingly stable towers and other buildings. This ,of course, was not “amusing” to the working craftsmen! When he got married and became a father, he shared some of his childhood memories his wife Patricia. Of course these stories included his grandiose and gigantic cork block structures, of which he had been so proud as a child, and which, according to Sven, had astounded the adults. After he had told this to Patricia and once she had seen and experienced the blocks on a visit to the old factory, the Korxx story began – the incredible KORXX building blocks were reinvented and further developed in a creative process with the entire family.
