Terracotta building bricks to delight children and adults alike. Reusable and plastic free. They encourage children to use their imagination and can be used for mindful play. A delightful miniature example of ‘slow architecture’ that can help increase creative fulfilment and decrease stress.
The British-born Indian architect, Laurie Baker also known as the ‘Gandhi of Architecture’, championed the use of local materials and techniques of vernacular architecture. A tribute to him, the Laurie Bricks are a set of perfectly handmade 1:5 scale terracotta bricks inviting people of all ages to play! Packaged in a brick-sized box, the gross (144 or a dozen/ dozen) of bricks, comes with a small trowel for bonding them using a desi mortar called ‘Lai’.
Made with wheat, ‘Lai’ is a natural Indian glue that can be broken down by soaking the bricks in water, making the set reusable. Not suitable for children under the age of 8, children must be supervised.
