About us

Qurkies are invented by Ruud van den Heijkant. A Dutch product designer and a father of two. “Plastic has an ecologic footprint of a dinosaur. So not something you want to give to your kids. I wanted to take an iconic example of a plastic toy and turn that into something natural.” The idea for Qurkies was born. After that, Qurkies was successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2018.

Ecologic sense is not only expressed in the Qurkies blocks, but also in our packaging. We minimize material and avoid plastic.

About cork

Qurkies are made of a beautiful natural product; the cork bark. The cork bark is stipped off the tree like a jacket, which grows back due to a unique process. The tree is not cut down! A cork tree can be harvested for the first time at the age of 25. After that only once in every 9 years. A mature cork tree grows about two Qurkies per day.

A stripped cork tree absorbs 4x more CO2 then a not used cork tree. Cork forests absorb 14M TON CO2 per year. They are therefore called ‘The lung of the Mediterranean’.
