One of the main hubs of wooden toys and dolls in India, Channapatna is a quiet town tucked away on the highway spanning from Bangalore to Mysore. The toys of Channapatna are earmarked through Geographic Indication as products of the area under the World Trade Organisation. This means that the toys that are produced are unique to the town, in the way that they are made and the materials that they are made of. With a heritage of more than two hundred years dating back to the reign of Tipu Sultan, Channapatna continues to be home to small-scale industries with artisans working within the confines of their homes, or in little factories. These toys use non toxic vegetable dyes as colours.
