More about Etikoppaka

The Etikoppaka craft is a 400-year old toy legacy. It gets its name from Etikoppaka village in Andhra Pradesh. The products are made using soft wood from Ankudu (Wrightia tinctoria) trees, native to the region. Craftsmen use a spinning lathe and small chisels, among other tools to carve the toys and souveniers that are then enriched with natural colour pigments derived from seeds, bark, roots and leaves. Lac, a colourless resinous secretion of insects, is mixed with the natural pigments applied on the toys to deliver their signature lacquered finish.
