Kreeda The Shell Game
Kreeda’s beautifully crafted shell-shaped game pieces from Channapatna are designed to revive the feeling of playing with cowrie shells of old.
The Shell Toss
Cowrie shells are used in India for all purposes, from decorative ornaments to edging for clothes. They have, over the years, become a popular element in Indian games. In fact, these shells are often used as substitutes for dice. History makes references to Emperor Akbar playing games using such shells. In the interest of pursuing our biodiversity, Kreeda has substituted wooden shell-shaped game pieces made by artisans from Channapatna.
