In the centre of Amsterdam, Annette, together with a small team, works on the Global Affairs collection. Global Affairs tries to brighten kids’ worlds and this can be seen in our products. All our toys are soft, colourful and completely safe to snuggle, play or sleep with. The bright and the colourful living accessories complete this collection.

Our selected suppliers Our suppliers are based in China and Peru and most of our products are handmade. We only work with small producers whom we strive to do fair business with. We visit our producers on a regular basis in order to build a strong working relationship; based on dialogue, transparency and mutual respect. As a result, we have established long-term relationships with our most valuable suppliers (i.e. 10 years). Many of the companies we work with are led by women and most of the employees are also women. This leads to independence, which is essential in all countries, but especially in China and India. Our suppliers are based in rural areas, which means the workers do not have to migrate to big cities for employment. They can care for their families and they do not have to work unfairly long hours or travel long distances. Many of the employees are farmers and they work at the farm during the harvest season and work for our suppliers the rest of the year. This provides them with year-round income to support themselves and their families. Of course, we always consider the safety and convenience of the workers. All of our suppliers meet the standards for a safe working place. Some have passed the BSCI audits, and others are in progress in obtaining this certificate. Furthermore, we try to make sure that the work environment of the workers coincides with their own culture. We think it is very important to respect other norms and beliefs and not impose our own Western culture.

Our products Shades and colours can change from batch to batch because most of our products are handmade. However, this always stays within our margins and a product will never leave the workplace without our approval. The only thing that doesn’t change is the safety of all our toys, which meet the very highest security standards: EN71 1-3, CE. All our products for children are tested according to EN71-1/3 standards, meaning all our toys are safe for babies, unless stated differently. All the testing documents are filed in our Amsterdam office. Working in developing countries and with small scale factories is a big but also very rewarding challenge, as every day is exciting and informative. The Global Affairs products come from constant communication and learning from one another. When viewing a Global Affairs product, we invite you to think about all the people behind it that have put so much love and effort into its creation. We hope you enjoy our products.

China All our crochet items are handmade by women in the Jiangsu province of China. They can do this work at home - or close to home – so that they don’t have to move to the city to find a job between the harvest seasons. This way, they can stay close to their family all year round.

DONATIONS For children We want to get all children smiling and with a little help, every child can smile. That’s why Global Affairs donates products to charity organizations in The Netherlands and in the Philippines.

Stichting Kalinga

Stichting Jarige Job

Stichting Sinterklaas bestaat

Kalinga Foundation helps Filipino children through structural help with selfreliance as its goal. Kalinga believes that education is a basic need and therefore started the Papaya School. The Papaya School is a primary school where children get substantial education and a healthy meal every day.

The ‘Jarige Job’ (Birthday Boy/Girl) Foundation wants to reduce the gap between richer and poorer children as much as possible. They make it possible for children between 4-12 years to celebrate their birthdays.

The charity is committed to give an average of 2,750 underprivileged children a great ‘Pakjesavond’ (The night when St. Nicholas hands out presents to the children in The Netherlands).
