The wise village folk hold the secret to true happiness in their vast hearts, as they set out each morning in search of work and friendly conversation. Every aspect of the Indian experience has a lesson to teach in a time that looks past authenticity. It has become a rarity to find veritable art. With wood sourced directly from the lush forests of Andhra Pradesh, the Kondapalli artisan proficiently sculpts the block of wood into memorable toys. Rendered with organic dyes, these sustainable toys make a statement in ethical art. Due to such heartwarming themes, Kondapalli toys are celebrated alongside the prominent festivals of Dussehra and Sankranti. 


The craftsmen of the Kondapalli community are declining in number, as economic crises invade their antique art. Patiently waiting for the sun to rise over their troubles, the small but impactful community of Kondapalli artisans are hopeful. As this familiar scene sits on your shelf, the spirit of handicraft thrives — living on as an eternal memoir through the tides of time.
