Personalisation Notes

I have always longed to visit the Antarctic – a dramatic wilderness inhabited by some of the world’s most endearing creatures. The sky-blue leather case and blue sodalite playing pieces perfectly complement the ever-present palette of sky and snow.

Epic Beauty

The stunning photographic design was inspired by Alexandra’s love of playing backgammon on skiing holidays and features many little details that delight, including two penguins looking inquisitively skywards as they gaze at a seal floating on an iceberg.


A slimmed-down version of our Signature backgammon sets, our Polar Travel set opens to reveal a leather box containing the playing pieces, dice and doubling cube. Dividing in two to become the shakers, it fits snugly inside so your board is all set to travel.

A Breathtaking Finish

The atmospheric scene is digitally reproduced on leather using sophisticated print technology. A warm contrast against the snowy landscape, tan leather triangles are inlaid into the design by hand to form a soft, completely seamless surface.

Make it Personal

A beautiful gift for the adventurous backgammon lover, our Polar Travel backgammon set can be personalised on the leather closure with laser-engraved initials, dates or a personal, handwritten message.


Backgammon board box lids and Stone Playing Pieces can be personalised with laser-engraved initials, dates, or even a short message. You can request engraving during the online checkout process.
