Wooden Backgammon Set

Time Period and Craftsmanship

Our wooden backgammon sets are made in Istanbul Turkey by our designated manufacturers. These manufacturers use a significant workforce of skilled workers who have been working tirelessly to craft these wonderful backgammon sets. These backgammon sets take upwards of 6 months to hand craft accurately.

Any slight misalignment can have significant consequences with these backgammon sets being unable to open. Each piece visible has been set and slotted by hand by one of our skilled artisans. Firstly the board itself is made, from this point a the design is set that will be accomplished and each of these backgammon sets is prepared.

Once each intricate piece is prepared, the pieces are inlaid with each score, setting placement designated by hand to prevent any misalignment. Our backgammon sets made with this intricacy, once finished are elegantly polished and the feeling of the craftsmanship is evident when your hand slides across the surface.

Although the surface is smooth, your hand will still feel the hundreds of handset pieces across the backgammon set.

Inclusion and What to Expect?

These backgammon sets include our very own instruction booklet to allow you to present as a gift. Each set also includes it’s very own set of backgammon pieces and a full complementary set of dices, including a doubling cube.

These backgammon sets although perfected, we can expect to find small variations between pieces, due to the significant time and effort being placed into crafting each piece.

Mother of Pearl

The term mother of pearl describes the shell used the often shines when a backgammon board is tilted. This piece of material is and organic-inorganic composite produced on the inner linings of shells found on the seabed.

There is a common misconception of this particular material being brittle, however this is quite the opposite, mother f pearl is actually a very strong and resilient piece of material. Often this material is used in luxury items such as jewellery, chess sets aswell as furniture.

This piece of material again can take a large period of time to prepare and each piece has to be cut with precision to inset and set by hand into each and every individual backgammon board. The mother of pearl often signifies an item of high value and therefore is used as show of a luxury product to increase it’s value.
