Played on a grid of five rows of horizontal square, Sonaikattam is an ancient game that is said to improve concentration and math skills. This set comes in the form of a fabric scroll, with rules printed in the reverse side. Also included in the set: 8+8 game pieces and dice.
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.
