Into the wild

A herd of giraffes stand on elegantly long limbs, surveying the scenery – and the players – in Alexandra’s joyful design, which captures these charming animals in their natural habitat, surrounded by palm trees.

A game of contrasts

Alexandra’s photographic backgammon boards are an opportunity for Alexandra to unleash her creativity in multi-layered designs that juxtapose photorealistic elements with more organic imagery, like the palm tree drawings and the printed rosewood triangles.

a fusion of crafts

Responsible for recreating the tiniest of details in Alexandra’s design with perfect precision, the African scene is printed on the backgammon board by a fine art printer in archival inks, after which it passes through the hands of a variety of different artisans who specialise in traditional crafts, including a master joiner, leather artist and hand-lacquering expert.

SEMI-PRECIOUS STONES

Our limited-edition Giraffe backgammon set is presented with luxurious playing pieces. Alexandra personally chose the contrasting semi-precious materials – beautiful, banded malachite and shimmering mother of pearl – to complement the Africa-inspired colours on the board.
