Destiny brings forth priceless handicrafts from Etikoppaka, a serene village situated on the banks of the Varaha river in the Visakhapatnam district of Andhra Pradesh. These artisans have evolved one of India's most treasured art forms and continuously strive to pump life into this fascinating tradition.

Ankudu, an abundant indigenous variant, is the parent wood for this vibrant Etikoppaka handicraft. With the most primitive of tools, these artisans create flawless curved surfaces, smooth and glistening after the application of the lac. Communities of such cultural and historical importance have always taught societies about sustainability in material design. This wooden toy scooter uses a unique form of paint – the raw vegetable. Vegetable dyes gracefully stain the surface of the spinning toy as the artisan creates patterns and blocks of colour.
