Iconic HEVEA non-toxic, pure natural rubber Kawan Duck & Soothing Toy, highly hygienic design and plastic-free.
Have you been trying to figure out which products are actually sustainable and non-toxic for your child? These are not buzzwords for the Hevea brand, but what the company was built on over ten years ago in Copenhagen.
The Kawan duck is 12cm tall, handcrafted out of pure natural rubber with a silky touch, and is of course, toxic free and compostable. Each duck is hand painted and unique to its brothers and sisters, but always cute. Kawan's shape, colours, and elasticity are thoughtfully designed to encourage your baby's sensation of touch and stimulate their development of vision. Kawan is made for playing, teething, and bathing and there are no perforations or holes in the bottom, so your child won’t be exposed to mould.
The iconic Kawan teether is 10cm tall, made of pure natural rubber and is completely free of plastic. The colour is painted with pure natural plant pigments and helps stimulate and encourage the baby's vision. Irritated gums will find great relief chewing the textured beak, feet, and neck. Kawan is soft, light and gentle, and easy to hold for even the tiniest hands. The one-piece design has no squeaker, cracks or joints, which prevents the build-up of bacteria and mould.
Kawan is from Malaysia, where his name means Friend. Safe by Nature, beautiful by Design.

The toys should be cleaned by hand. They should not be washed in a dishwasher. For a more natural approach to cleaning your toys, use vinegar. Mix four parts white vinegar to one part warm water. Submerge the toys completely or apply the solution to each toy with a sponge.
When the toy is not in use, dry it and keep in a clean and dry place, out of direct sunlight and heat. Produced from 100% natural rubber latex.
HEVEA is made from 100% natural rubber which isn't conserved or given added antioxidants to keep it light yellow. Natural rubber is a natural material that changes over time.
For the love of the future generations – and the planet
All we do at HEVEA, we do to cater for children's need to play, have fun and learn. But we want to be sure that you can feel safe with your child playing and toys. That's why we have developed a large selection of beautiful, handcrafted children's products from natural rubber from the HEVEA Brasiliensis tree.
Besides being fantastic and entertaining toys, they are all environmentally friendly.
About the Company
HEVEA is not just a brand; it's a story with its own purpose. The HEVEA story is about how we want to leave fingerprints on the world – a fingerprint showing that we strive to do better, to create a more mindful way of taking care of the planet we leave for future generations.
HEVEA is inquisitive. We test, try and make tangible efforts to link sustainable thinking with aesthetic design. We are constantly developing, and we always allow the best ideas to guide us, even though we seldom know where they are going to lead.
HEVEA is more than what meets the eye. We are innovators in natural rubber, in design, in ways to work together, in processes and in distribution.
HEAVE began as a question
Historically, HEVEA began as a question that needed an answer: how to take care of our children and our planet just a little bit better. That makes everything quite simple for us: we were born of an urge to do better. To show that how we act and live in the world makes a difference to ourselves, and our children – the citizens of tomorrow. The lack of natural options for our future generations and the choices we have to make was what made us turn to Hevea Brasiliensis – natural rubber, and this has formed the basis of our mission and our purpose from the very beginning.
PLASTIC IS PASSÉ, NATURAL IS NOW
Hevea, or natural rubber, can replace many kinds of plastic. Hevea decomposes naturally and can be reused to make new products. The wood of the tree itself and the rubber are our only self-imposed limitations when it comes to designing and developing new products. However, this hardly feels limiting as we are still getting to know these materials better and better. In all our curiosity, we keep firmly in contact with our roots and our reason for being here: to give you the option of creating a fingerprint that is slightly better than the one we inherited.
Great design & natural materials
Geographically, our mix is unique. While the hevea trees grow mainly in Southeast Asia, and much of our production requires skills and facilities found close to the plantations where the hevea is harvested, our design philosophy is inherently Danish. Unifying the beautiful design with clear functionality is the core of the renowned Danish design tradition, and we stick to this in discovering and developing all that our cherished hevea can offer.
