Card Radar: KIWI Playing Cards

Created by Mattia Santangelo and designed by Angela Munteanu from Varese in Italy, KIWI Playing Cards are a delightful deck inspired the cute creatures native to New Zealand. The deck sports a blue, green and blue colorway with both the Kiwi bird and fruit prominently featured.

The deck is fully custom from the card backs, Ace of Spades to the updated court cards and tuck box design. On the tuck box design, Mattia told Kardify,
The landscape on the tuck box is inspired by the Skipper canyon of Queenstown, New Zealand. The Kiwi birds have always wanted to fly, but like what their name mean, in old greek, “without wings” they cannot fly. We wanted to make them fly so they started using umbrellas like a parachute.

To maintain familiarity, the face cards are somewhat standard. The court cards have been updated with colors to match the theme of the deck and the Kiwi bird now takes the place of the familiar royals.

The KIWI deck is printed by Cartamundi and produced by AssoKappa il negozio, an Italian magic shop that has produced many decks. Available now for $19 from AssoKappa.
