Made by ET GAMES, who manufacture ‘Pucket’ in India using Asha Handicrafts.
Pucket is a frantic dexterity game. Players race each other to clear the pucks from their side of the board by catapulting them through a small hole leading to the other side (the “gate”). Any pucks that arrive on your side must be sent back before you win. The game appeals to anyone with a competitive streak. Pucket games are hand-crafted in India from sheesham wood.
Asha Handicrafts Association
A fair trade organisation , Asha represents more than 6,500 artisans in 10 states of India. The association’s name, meaning “hope” in Sanskrit, represents its goal to sustain the marketing ability of individual and family–based artisans. A not–for–profit organisation, Asha works to ensure that benefits of handicraft production reach the craftspeople themselves. Asha promotes sustainability and helps eliminate producer debt through direct purchases and advance payments. Producer benefits include educational assistance for children, medical checkups and treatment, a health centre at Saharanpur, savings programs for artisans and spouses, non formal education projects and relief–related social projects. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from Asha since 1976.
