Xyloba Swiss Hand Made by Weizenkorn

Xyloba musical marble runs are manufactured in the sheltered workshops of the Weizenkorn Foundation in Basel. Using raw wood, the individual Xyloba parts are drilled out, cut and sanded. Several manufacturing steps are performed manually and give people with disabilities the opportunity to be involved in a meaningful activity.

Over 200 people, predominantly with mental or psychological difficulties, have found sheltered employment in the Weizenkorn Foundation. Besides manufacturing Xyloba products, Weizenkorn also manufactures timeless, beautifully crafted wooden toys, high-quality candles and other products.
