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, cowries have been used as ornaments and even as currency in several African kingdoms, becoming synonymous with wealth and fortune. They are still used today in the Art of Divination and continue to be worn as a talisman in many cultures to bring good fortune.
