The association was found in 1990 as a voluntary parent organisation. Its aim is to promote Erzgebirge Wooden Art and its producers by supporting image campaigns or proceeding against plagiarism. It also holds several trade marks like “Echt Erzgebirge®” and annually awards the prize “Tradition and Form”.
The association’s constitution and the trademark constitution of “Echt Erzgebirge®” determine that everything produced by the Wooden Toy Maker must be made in the German Erzgebirge region and include predominate manual work. Additionally, high quality requirements must be met.
All the above mentioned criteria are totally applicable for our product range. Since 2009, our products are therefore allowed to carry the label „Echt Erzgebirge, Holzkunst mit Herz®“ (Original from the Erzgebirge, Wooden Art with Soul).
But what does that mean for you as a customer?
Products with the label “Echt Erzgebirge, Holzkunst mit Herz®“ are guaranteed to be made in the Erzgebirge. “Echt Erzgebirge, Holzkunst mit Herz®“ is a brand name and a protected geographical designation. Products without this label are not tested according to the association’s constitution.
Further registered trademarks and indications of origins are announced by the Association of Craftspeople and Toymakers of the Erzgebirge Region in Olbernhau.
