In fact Vineet Verma, Executive Director, Brigade Hospitality, had personally gone shopping for toys, dolls and artefacts in Channapatna. He had even visited a craftsman’s house in the toy town, witnessing how the artefacts were crafted, interacted with the people and personally picked pieces he felt would be a perfect fit in the hotel, while reflecting the rich heritage of Karnataka.
