>Kay Bojesen’s family is growing, and the familiar Kay Bojesen Monkey, first produced in 1951, now also comes in a tiny 10-cm version.
The Monkey is manufactured from plantation teak and limba wood.
Despite its size, the little Monkey, of course, has just as much charisma and charm as its older siblings in Kay Bojesen’s troupe.
As the teak is from a plantation, there may be dark spots and stripes, but exposure to air and light will reduce these over time.
Accordingly, there will be variations in the wood from monkey to monkey, making every single monkey utterly unique.
Kay Bojesen's Monkey was born in 1951.
For christenings, birthdays, school leavers and weddings. A classic and a dear friend for life;
from being a popular toy in the playroom to a much-loved design icon in a future home.
Kay Bojesen's premise in his work was the conviction that his live objects, blood and had to have a heart.
The wooden animals family includes a cheerful collection from monkeys to songbirds.
A great gift for passing an exam, a confirmation candidate or graduate, for weddings and all other memorable occasions.
A gift for life and can be passed on to future generations.

North Sea Design is official dealer of the Danish brand of Kay Bojesen.
We deliver all wooden animals and have a lot animals in stock.
Kay Bojesen’s Monkey comprises 31 parts and is made of limba wood and sustainable teak.
Every single member of the monkey family is produced in Denmark, and is absolutely unique.
In working with beloved design classics, we are upholding a design heritage that demands integrity
in every aspect of the product.
That means we have a strong focus on using sustainable wood to produce our monkeys.
The monkey is made from plantation teak; as a sustainable alternative to natural forest teak.
This ensures responsible harvesting and better living conditions for the local people living
near the plantations all over the world.
Freshly-cut plantation teak varies from wax-coloured to pale greyish green, sometimes
speckled with dark spots or stripes.
Our supplier focuses strongly on putting together the different colour variations as uniformly as possible.
We always endeavour to match the arms and legs to the monkey’s torso colour,
while the head is often darker than the rest of the monkey.
Given that we have chosen to work with plantation teak, the colour variations are unavoidable,
so they are not regarded as a parameter of quality.
The colour variations are a result of the choices we have made with regard to the sustainability
and integrity in our production of the Kay Bojesen Monkey.
The actual parameters of quality with regard to the wood are a surface free from splinters,
marks and splits, and only healthy knots are acceptable.
No residual glue must ever be visible.
The limba wood we use for the Monkey is imported from Africa and complies with
the European Union Timber Regulation (EUTR) as a guarantee of lawfully harvested timber in the country of origin.
Over time, exposure to the light and the air may change the subtle shades of the teak
to a more consistent, warm golden brown tone.
However, every single Kay Bojesen Monkey will retain its absolutely unique personality.
