It is truly a delight to fill homes with toys that speak the language of Indian culture and vibrancy. These Etikoppaka handicrafts capture India's most definitive practices with visually arresting colours and forms. Adorned with Rangoli motifs at the sides, the piece showcases the bride and the groom dressed in traditional wedding attire as the priest recites hymns to mark the auspicious occasion.

Famed for their exotic use of organically produced colours, the artisans of Etikoppaka set high standards in defining truly marvellous art— sustainable and authentic. For hours at a stretch, the artisans undergo an elaborate process to achieve the beautiful final toy. In times of antiquity, the efforts of artisans were suitably rewarded by the Kings who took a keen interest in handicraft. As the status of handicraft artisans began to stoop to insignificance, the toys still prevailed. With soaring spirits, the present community of Etikoppaka strives to make ends meet to preserve the soul of Indian art.
