"Koka Varde" ["Wooden Frog" in English] is a small shop where you can find wooden toys, interior and household pieces designed and produced in the "Wooden Frog" workshop and also handmade goods created by other Latvian and foreign craftsmen. The shop was first opened in May 2003. These days it has a new home: Riga, Akas street 2. For more detailed information please check this LINK.

We, Guntars and Evija Andersons, the owners of "Koka Varde" shop, come from one of the most beautiful places in Latvia called Sigulda. This town inspires us to create our special wooden things. Together with our assistants we work in our workshop already since 1997. There we make nice toys and educational playthings for kids, souvenirs, various decorations for home, fine household objects. We were bringing the products to fairs and markets in Latvia and abroad until our customers encouraged us to open a shop in Riga. We named it after one of our most popular kids' toys: green wooden frog. It is also one of the very first articles we have created in the workshop. The cute green frog with her up-and-down gait has the exact skill for a shop patroness: it uplifts mood of both little ones and big serious ones.

In order to make things more interesting for our customers, we have also invited other craftsmen and artists of applied arts to fill shelves in our shop. In "Koka Varde" you will find works made by artisans from Latvia, neighboring Lithuania and Estonia and even other countries. These are various wooden things, colorful textiles, practical and comfortable knittings, interesting ceramics, original bijouterie, candles, aromatic herb bags, lovely toys and so much more! Every item that we accept for sale is carefully picked, because everything should match the concept and the atmosphere of the shop and everyone should find here something nice and suitable. We have thought about little ones, beauty admirers and those who prefer functional solutions.

Each purchase we wrap in a special "Koka Varde" sealed paperbag and rope it with a linen or decorative cord. If your purchase is bought as a present we will ornament it with a nice decor made from nature gifts. 

It is also possible to place orders in the shop. For instance, if the patch blanket catches your eye but you would like a different size or the colors do not suit the interior of your house, we can definitely talk about more fitting solution.

And of course at the shop you can ask about order possibilities in our WORKSHOP!
