The Artisans

The art of Banarasi wooden toys has been passed on from generation to generation by a community of skilled craftsmen. This craft of toy-making in Banaras is said to be older than the city itself.

For generations, the Banarasi artisans made toys like the spinning top (called Lattu in Hindi), rattles, dolls, and kabja boxes and sindoora for women to store their jewellery and kumkum. But in the modern age, the demand for such things began to die out, and with it this style of craftsmanship. Today, Lattu works with these artisans to understand their needs, their working style, their tools and techniques; and without changing much, helps them to make products that are more suited to the contemporary markets and lifestyles.
