Our Story

Hi there, 

This story starts in 2022 with a Montessori dad trying to find a toy shelf that was made from natural materials, sturdy and still beautiful and as it turned out that wasn't easy. We bought some different options but they wobbled/ swayed and most were made from plywood or MDF timber with veneer which are made using many chemical adhesives. I wanted better, I needed better, so I designed exactly what we wanted and with the help of my dad we brought it to life and made our shelving unit. It ticked every box, it was solid and sturdy yet still naturally beautiful. What really makes our shelves stand out is their elegant curved edges, solid wood and no visible screws.

I want to know other families and daycares have the option of solid, safe and beautiful shelves which is why Handcrafted Montessori is here today. All units are made locally in Perth,WA using quality local  materials.

We are currently designing and testing more products including Montessori toys and play equipment.

Why Choose Handcrafted Montessori?

At Handcrafted Montessori, we believe that toys and furniture should be made to last, which is why we use only the highest-quality materials and craftsmanship in our products. Our eco-friendly approach means that you can feel good about your purchase, knowing that it was made with the health of your child and the planet in mind


We use locally sourced beeswax to make our beeswax wood balm which is used to treat all our furniture, our wood balm is made in house to ensure it is non-toxic and completely safe for babies and children. Our Toys are sealed with natural, non toxic hard set oil to ensure they are mouth friendly and easy to clean.

Our products are inspired by Montessori philosophy, which emphasizes self-directed learning and discovery. We believe that children learn best through play and exploration, and our toys and furniture are designed to foster independence, creativity, and critical thinking.
