The luxury sets primarily stemmed from the owner of Helena Wood Arts, who also specialise in high end furnishing, poker sets and many more.

Manufacturing Process, How long does it take to make a Backgammon set?
Ofcourse as with any handmade item, the time required to finish each piece can take upwards of weeks, partly due to the scores, grooves and hand inset finishing. The quality is quite visible on the intricacy and the attention to detail gone into designing both the interior and exterior surface of the backgammon board.
Craftsmen carve this from solid wood, a combination of Walnut, Ebony wood and rose wood is used, these are initially imported from across the world before craftsmen place their skills into effect.
Mother of Pearl
Often many are not so familiar with mother of pearl inlays, a inorganic-organic component commonly found on oyster surfaces. Craftsmen use this along with basic tools to inlay each piece with this component.
These are very much visible on the exterior surface of the backgammon board and is handcrafted into the backgammon set surfaces to give the lighter effect of the squares.
