When you buy this product, you are supporting local wood craftsmen earn a more dignified life and also becoming a part of a movement to revive dying craft forms in India. We think that's definitely a meaningful purchase! These crafts are also eco-friendly since they are finished with lac - a natural, non-toxic resin secreted by microscopic tiny insects on tree bark. Lac is an organic non-toxic finish which is not chemically treated. This makes it perfectly safe for the artisans who are not exposed to any occupational hazards, and for you - the user. Maya Organic only uses natural dyes that are blended with lac for colouring the products. Any wood waste generated (wood chips, wood dust etc) is used as raw material for the incense stick industry in Channapatna and surrounding areas.
Why We Like It
We like this product because it's a natural alternative to toys! In addition to supporting existing artisans with contemporary design/product development support and consistent orders, Maya Organic has also been training several new artisans, particularly women in the art of making handcrafted wooden Chennapatna toys which helps them earn their living with the infusion of fresh skills and design inputs suited to a contemporary audience.
Toys have a powerful influence on children in their thinking, learning abilities and peer interactions! These toys make all of it happen in the most natural way possible without exposing your kids to toxic materials and dyes.
