Studio Enoy is a social enterprise working with this Indian traditional wood lac-turnery craft, better known as Channapatna toy craft. Channapatna is small town on Bangalore-Mysore Highway, referred to as ‘gombegala ooru’, meaning ‘toy-town’.

This craft of lac-turnery had begun more than two centuries ago in Channapatna by the then ruler, Tipu Sultan who invited artisans from Persia to train the local artisans in the making of wooden toys.

Artisans create turned wood (radially symmetrical forms) products and then apply lacquer of bright and vibrant colour on it to enhance the beauty. In recent years, the craft has carved out a new path for itself and became international.  The craft is protected as a Geographical Indication (GI) under the World Trade Organization, administered by the Government of Karnataka.
