Celebrating the world of tweed, British craftsmanship and the British countryside, Alexandra has partnered with Huntsman Savile Row to bring to life Huntsman’s house tweed designs into one of her exclusive backgammon boards. The board features two different exclusive house tweed designs as selected by Alexandra and Pierre Lagrange, owner of Huntsman. This unique collaboration embodies the inherent connection between bespoke British craftsmanship and games which bring people together to inspire conversation for generations to come, celebrating the very best that the human hand can make.
For over 170 years, Huntsman has created distinctive tweed collections; now, clients have the opportunity to personalise the colour scheme and design. The only tailor on Savile Row to have a handloom in-house, giving patrons the opportunity to watch from the comfort of The Club as their signature tweed is realised, fine-tuning their colours before production in Huntsman’s partner mill in Scotland.
About the collaboration, Huntsman Savile Row Owner Pierre Lagrange, comments: “Huntsman has always been an admirer of Alexandra Llewellyn’s work, a leader of bespoke luxury games and furniture. The opportunity to collaborate with her and her team to create an original and beautiful design could not be missed. The backgammon boards’ intricate designs celebrate the bespoke craft and give our house tweeds a new platform to be enjoyed.”
The leather playing surface is encased in a Ziricote box, which has been laser engraved and sealed with hand-applied lacquer.
The shakers are black calf leather with inside lips to ensure fair and random rolls of the precision laser cut dice. The doubling die is embossed weighted leather. The playing pieces are weighed and wrapped leather in red and cream, engraved with the Huntsman "H" and measuring 45mm x 11mm and weighing 40g each.
