channapatna toys

The toys of channapatna are made of locally available wood and vegetable dyes. The artists have passed on skills since generations and with every new generation there are fewer left to continue the tradition.

Some of the designs listed in the following clippings

Let me know which ones you like and if there is any customized design that you are looking for then you are welcome to suggest the same. Also please suggest ways in which reach of the same can be increased for better sustainability of the craft and its artisans.

Buy local toys, encourage local artisans and allow the local art and crafts to flourish and blossom again.
