Maya Organic is an artisan NGO initiative that organizes the working poor of India into worker owned enterprises. One of the sectors of Maya Organic is lacware, a traditional eco-friendly Indian handicraft where wooden items are hand-worked on a lathe then finished with lac, a natural resin secreted by tree-dwelling insects.
The Maya Organic includes rattles, mobiles and stroller toys, pull toys, sorters, stackers, blocks and tops, with vivid colors courtesy of natural dyes including turmeric, indigo powder and catechu, an extract from the acacia tree. We have admired the Ma Me Pa turtle pull toy before and think that the other toys are just as great. We found the biggest online selection at Fig Toys.
