The Cariappas, a pair of dolls are from Coorg, Karnataka. This is a part of our initiative to revive the traditional doll stories of Channapatna, Karnataka. Each piece is made of wrightia tinctoria or hale mara, a safe and naturally seasoned medicinal plant wood. The wood is first turned on a lathe and then applied the base glossy colour using the traditional lac-turnery technique. And then they have been painted over with safe, non-toxic oil-paints. However these are not suitable for children. Please note that the colours may vary a little bit from the one in the pics.

Not to be washed. To clean use a mildly damp cloth. Avoid blows against hard surfaces. Please note that wood being a natural material reacts differently to atmospheric changes which is beyond our control.
