Premium Backgammon Set
Our premium collection of 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 pieces of art. These backgammon sets take upwards of 6 months to hand craft accurately. Any slight misalignment can have significant consequences with the board 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 piece 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.
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 pieces although perfected, we can expect to find small variations between pieces, due to the significant time and effort being placed into crafting each piece.
