We care immensely for the environment. With the growing use of plastic materials, dangers within global warming, extreme weather, landfills, and even meat consumption causing many problems, we have to make a change. Because of overconsumption and excessive waste, we have ensured that the products that we sell are better for our world. 

Most of our products are biodegradable and handmade, meaning that the products are not mass-produced and will reduce damage to the environment. Our hope is to fix issues we face as a global community and lead this change. We want to share beautiful things made from natural materials like tagua, raffia, bamboo, exotic woods and more.


Our market approach is unique because of our willingness to be fair to customers and now contributing to fair trade, more use of eco-friendly items, instead of flooding the market with plastic.

We will support others on a low wage in developing countries, promoting less plastic, a healthier environment, competitive pricing for customers, and leading companies worldwide for fair trade goods. We deliver products through platforms such as eBay, Etsy, Amazon, website and continue working closely with our suppliers. In the past, we have helped donate to child rescue in Nepal.

Together with our suppliers, we have raised over £3,000; with this support, the children can regularly go to school and benefit from a midday meal. The kids' headteacher reports that the children are more alert and engaged. The parents have noticed this change too.

The money is enough to pay for two years of a midday meal for the whole school. Before this donation, 20% of the kids were suffering from malnutrition, but the follow up after shows this is no longer the case.

Carved Culture's Nepal Charity

In the future, we will implement change to the world, donating to charities, investing in small business start-ups, help make education better in schools, support those suffering from mental health and more. Our company will continue to be fair trade and will always contribute to a better well being for the world.

Traditional Wooden Instruments

We love music, which is why our mission is to globalize music education so that anyone can play any instrument- redefining music from the way music instruments are sourced, crafted, and enjoyed. We have achieved this by building a music community, and together, we have produced more than 1,500 free learning resources on our blog and in the form of videos which complement the eco-friendly musical instruments and gifts available on our store that supports our planet and artisans from around the world promoting sustainability, fair-trade, and cultural traditions on a global scale.

Our blog is a treasure of resources for musicians, creative souls, percussionists, and music enthusiasts. From Kalimba tabs to in-depth articles, we've created a hub for global musical education. Explore our world of sound and knowledge, and let's journey together through the universal language of music.

We are encouraging natural materials available instead of contributing to factors that poison the environment from plastic and harmful chemicals. We are on a positive mission, and people who want a better world will support us to help make it happen. We will be the change that we want to see. Join us on our mission.


We believe in a future where every note played on a musical instrument resonates not only with beautiful melody but also with the values of sustainability and fairness. Through our commitment to eco-friendly practices, sustainable sourcing, and fair trade principles, we aspire to create a community of musicians, sound therapists and people from all walks of life who cherish music. Together, we strive to embody sustainability, where each instrument tells a story of craftsmanship, integrity, and positive impact.
