Sura is the first product by HORY, a new brand aiming at creating genuine products that transmit intensity.
This fun and beautiful toy made from cork is designed and produced entirely in Catalonia.
Sura is a toy for children over 3 years old. The set contains a boat, buoys and several fishes to play fishing while they take a bath.
Playing with Sura requires various skills. Attaching the fishes to the buoys is a real challenge. The game is participatory; up to three boys and girls can play forming teams. Sura has been designed to be educational and will help kids discover the Mediterranean fishing arts.
Sura is a 100% recyclable toy and includes a template so parents and kids can create more fishes reusing gel and shampoo containers.
Sura pays homage to natural cork, one of the finest and most delicate Mediterranean materials. The cork is the outer bark of the Cork Oak (Quercus Suber). It has been used for centuries for its unique properties of buoyancy as well as thermic and acoustic isolation, and regenerates itself naturally.
Sura has been created to value the work of longline fishermen in the Mediterranean. This fishing technique, the most environmentally friendly, allows to catch some of the great specimens of our waters like the bass, the common dentex, the pullet or the dory, among others.
Sura has been designed in Barcelona and combines the numerical control milling precision with a sensual touch brought by craftsmanship. It is 100% made in Catalonia in collaboration with the Centre Especial de Treball El Vilar de Blanes.
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WITH YOUR DONATIONS
We have already made the first prototypes and the toy manufacture test. The first non-commercial units of the product are being produced. This pre-series will let us control every step of the process as well as the compliance with regulations. The prices and distribution channels are set.
HERE IS WHERE WE NEED YOU
By supporting the project and pre-ordering units you allow us to gather the resources needed to produce the first series and distribute the product in shops.
With your support we could manage to have the commercial production ready by April 2014. By pre-ordering on Verkami, you will be among the first to get the toy. Besides, to thank you for your support, the pre-orders benefit from a 25% discount compared to future prices in stores
We would love to satisfy the most impatient patrons, to do so we offer the opportunity to get some of the pre-series limited edition prototypes or collector edition that we are working on, so they can enjoy the toy in December 2013, right for Christmas.
Those who decide to pick up the toy in Blanes in person, will receive the address. The shipments included in some of the offers only apply to the Spanish peninsula. People who would like a delivery outside of the Spanish peninsula can contact us by email to go over the shipment details.
