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.
PLEASE NOTE THIS COUPLE IS AVAILABLE IN TWO SIZES AS SEEN IN THE PIC. THE PRICES ARE QUOTE SEPARATELY FOR THE LARGE SET AND THE SMALLER SET.
Large set ~
Man - 9.5 inches height x 4 inches width, Lady - 8.5 inches height x 3.5 inches width
Small set ~
Man & Lady - 4inches height x 35mm base dia
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.
