Each duck and feathered friend is carved by hand in Indonesia, using locally harvested bamboo roots and offcuts that would otherwise go to waste. The tradition of puppetry is deeply rooted in Indonesia, where generations of sculptors and artists once created exquisite characters in bamboo. By working with makers from two villages, we help to keep these traditional skills alive and provide secure work for local people.
When each piece is finished, it is buffed and polished to the rich natural shine that characterizes DCUK products, echoing the glossy feathers of the birds that inspired them. Our characters then receive their defining details: a pair of spotty welly boots here, a peaked cap or tiara there, ready to embark on a journey over the high seas and rolling hills to Devon and on to their final homes.
When we are all satisfied that each bird has achieved that special breed of duck company charm, he or she is given a fitting name and awarded the DCUK Pin, a mark of exceptional quality and irrepressible character. Representing the values that set us apart from birds of other flocks, this badge of distinction is our assurance that you are receiving a gift of exceptional quality and irrepressible personality.
