One of the oldest board games of India, Chowkabara is an exciting race-game that has found mentions in epics like the Mahabharata. This game set comes in the form of a hand scroll, making you feel every bit regal. There are 4 sets of beautiful pawns and 4 cowrie shells, included in this set. The rules of the game are printed on the back of the scroll, making it a compact travel companion.
Sreeranjini set up Kavade in Bengaluru more than a decade ago, to bring back the lost charm of ancient games.
Concepts integral to Kavade
-Revive games & simplistic toys that are on the verge of getting extinct
-Conscious of materials used
-Collaborate with artisans & self help groups from all over India to bring in a craft element as well as to provide a market front to the artisansis.
-Constantly evolving to bring to the fore, more and more lost games
The quaint store is complemented by Kavade Attic, an engaging space to indulge in & create playtime memories that are far removed from the adulteration of plastic or technology. In a world dominated by digital media, Kavade takes pride in reviving games that are strongly entrenched in culture and tradition. Kavade is Sreeranjini's way of asking people to try the alternative, to unplug, to discover different ways of coming together and staying together.
