DCUK began after an introduction to the runner duck in a field outside of a village in Indonesia. This flightless bird inspired the founding of the Original Wooden Duck Company. Their goal was to design and handcraft these whimsical gifts, leading to the creation of the many adorable characters they have today. Each bird is carved by hand in Indonesia using sustainable, locally harvested bamboo shoots and off-cuts. They are then hand polished and painted, making each of these quirky creatures wonderfully unique!
