Etikoppaka (Wooden Toys) a treasure from AP

by Shatika, March 21, 2016

These toys have been hand crafted by the artisans living in a small village in Andhra Pradesh, called Etikoppaka. These artisans still use the same old traditional methods of turning wood and making toys for children, which was used 200 years ago. Etikoppaka village was once famous for making colourful toys for children, which was used 200 years ago. Etikoppaka village was once famous for making colourful toys for children in completely organic, natural and vibrant colours. Today, only a few artisans practice this craft in its original form, using old primitive machines, and natural colours, made out of seeds and barks of tree after applying the natural colour on the wooden surface. These toys are made only in circular shapes. This craft is becoming rare and we also want to help this age old traditional skill and knowledge to be passed on to the next generation. As this skill and knowledge will become extinct. As Shatika believes in traditional and it should not get lost in modernity.
