Wedgie has very close ties with Sri Lanka, where our Wedgies are made through an incentive scheme for local workers. One of our good friends over there is out regular tuktuk driver and all round lovely chap Mudali. On our visit earlier this year we had the pleasure of meeting his children Malinga & Buddhika. Unfortunately their lack of English and our lack of Singhese meant that communication was limited to smiling and nodding. After speaking with Mudali Wedgie decided to fund the children’s English classes. They are now 4 months in and by all accounts their language skills are coming along strong. Team Wedgie look forward to catching up with them on our next visit. 📷 @mr_schools

COMING SOON | Meet Sizzou: often found on the bed of the ocean, attempting to extract revenge on dangerous and mythical sharks. In between his submarine expeditions Sizzou likes to anchor down at the nearest door and ponder his somewhat complicated family life, and whether the shark he is persistently hunting, ever even existed. 🦈

Wedgie is proud to be part of an incentive scheme based on Sri Lanka aimed at the empowerment of men and women based in rural areas of the country. 
Unpainted doorstops are delivered directly to employees houses along with paints brushed and tools. Once painted and competed, the Wedgies are paid for on collection. This allows people in rural communities the convenience of earning an income whilst going about their daily routines.

RG from @anarchyofthedeckchair : 
Doors used to slam shut a lot in my house, but not anymore thanks to these little guys! They’re sooo useful but beautiful to look at too. The other day when a door slammed, I said (stupidly in front of a group of young people,my children and a lot of their friends)‘ thank goodness for my wedgies’. Lots of ha ha ha and snorting, followed by a list of their favourite wedgies! 
a) atomic wedgie 
b) basic wedgie 
c) sidewinder wedgie 
d)waterbomb wedgie
