About

Tabletop Gaming accessories for all

Kawawunga offers high-quality handmade bags and wooden boxes for holding dice used in roleplaying table-top games. Based in Ohio, Kate is the owner and creator of the unique drawstring dice bags and partners with husband Josh to design and craft beautiful wooden dice boxes with strong magnetic closings. We believe that you should have a bag or box as stylish and beautiful as your dice!

Kate is a financial accountant at a university, a part-time MBA student and a full-time gamer. When she is not studying, stressing out about work or worrying what what Josh the DM is going to pull next--she crochets. Kate has been crocheting for the past 15 years, and in July 2016, expanded to Etsy to start selling designs online to help streamline commission work.

Josh is a mechanical engineer and has recently expanded his love for technology and woodworking with the CNC Piranha FX machine in which we craft all of our boxes. He spends his non-working hours enjoying the finer things in life: scotch, video games, trolling ebay for pocket watches, and diet Pepsi.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

We are currently not accepting personalized orders at this time, thanks!

Sizing details

We offer a variety of sizes of dice bags. A standard "dice set" is 7 polyhedral dice. Each listing has specifics of how much they can hold, please see the details included on the listing page.

Care instructions

For see-through drawstring bags: While 12 gauge vinyl is durable and tough, please avoid storing sharp or pointy objects (like scissors or pens) and avoid leaving your bags in hot vehicles for long periods of time.

For Dice Boxes: Our boxes are tested to the extreme! We've tossed them down stairs, dropped them on concrete AND run them over with a car. They stay closed until you want them to open. Though we don't suggest putting yours to such extreme measures. We suggest to avoid contact with water to keep your box as smooth as possible for use as wood naturally expands with water absorption.

For digital download items: You can find instructions on downloading the files after purchase at https://www.etsy.com/help/article/3949

Gift wrapping and packaging

All purchases are wrapped in tissue paper and secured with a ribbon in a bubble package mailer or box. If you would like us to write a message to a gift recipient, please let us know and we will include it in the package.

Why are liners important for dice bags?

Adding a fabric liner to crochet bags eliminates the problem of small objects slipping through the naturally holey crocheted fabric.
This fabric liner also creates a denser, more finished feel that allows your dice to easily tumble out of the bag when pouring on the table. It also gives a wonderful pop of color and awe when showing them off to your fellow adventurers.

Most of our crochet bags have a liner with the exception of a small few. If you don't see an inside out photo with liner showing, it's not going to have one. Please contact us if you'd like for a liner to be added for a small fee ($1-2).

What type of dice box engraving can you do?

PLEASE NOTE: We are not accepting personalized engravings at this time.

We do all the engravings with a router bit so we're limited on what we can do but we can do font and simple line drawing images. Blocky font like times new Roman or similar turns out the best (script or italic fonts don't engrave well). For the line drawing images we just have to look at how close the lines are since the closer they are the weaker the wood grains get and the possibly of tear out increases, and that's no fun for anyone. We do use a hardwood so that it holds up better, but there are limitations on the engraving.
