Tribal Kaudi/Cowrie Work of Chattisgarh

Tribal Kaudi/Cowrie Work of Chattisgarh


Cowrie symbolises with Goddess Lakshmi and thus prosperity and wealth to the tribals of Chhatisgarh. Irkipal village four kilometres from the Tokapal is a small habitat of Banajara tribals who embroider bright coloured clothes in cowrie and shell work. The cowrie embellished items are then used like waistbands, baskets, caps, garments for women, armbands etc. The tribals freely experimenting with the usage of cowrie on all variety of textiles have also used it on the bison Maria headgear.
