THE STORY BEHIND
ALMASIKA’s debut collection revisits a natural treasure, rich with symbolism: the cowrie shell.
Cowries have long been a symbol of prosperity, spirituality and fertility. From ancient times through to the late 19th Century, they were used for ornamentation and even currency, and they are still used today in the Art of Divination. They have became synonymous with wealth and fortune, and continue to be worn in as a talisman to bring good fortune in many cultures.
