Alexandra, was first introduced to Backgammon in the alleys of Cairo while strolling with her Egyptian step-grandfather as a child. Over time, as her travels broadened, her interest in the game evolved. Her Backgammon designs were launched in December 2010 - a truly unique vision of the oldest recorded board game in the world. After countless games of backgammon with people from all over the world, Alexandra was fascinated by the idea that board games operate as an independent vocabulary requiring neither common language nor culture.
Alexandra has designed a collection of six backgammon boards - Palm, Pheasant, Butterfly, Nudes, Antler, Carnival and Peacock - and also takes one-off commissions for gamestables and boards. Every detail is created in close conversation with the client, creating a truly original way to illustrate memories and life achievements. Alexandra works with a team of mastercraftsman specialising in different techniques and materials, making each unique commission an original to be enjoyed by generations to come.
