Personalisation Notes

Growing up in the English countryside, butterflies have long been a source of wonder and joy to me. Their shimmering wings and beautiful symmetry make them the perfect muse for my designs.

exquisite details

Housed in a richly coloured, dramatically grained Ziricote wood box, the natural warmth of the wooden playing surface contrasts beautifully with the striking photorealism of the butterflies and veined marble triangles, which are realised with extraordinary clarity upon the board.

Ethereal beauty

Symbolic of transformation, hope and celebration, Alexandra’s appreciation of the Victorian tradition of collecting insects inspired her to explore the many different species of butterfly in the animal kingdom. Each pair of electric-blue wings is reproduced in high-definition detail to appear just as it does in nature.

entirely handcrafted

The craftsmanship process is overseen by expert artisans every step of the way, with the artwork digitally printed upon the wooden board by a fine art printer using archival inks before passing through the hands of nine different craftspeople, including a master joiner, leather artist and authority in hand-lacquering for a flawless, matte satin finish.

Elevate your game

Designed to enhance your game of backgammon, semi-precious playing pieces are a luxurious addition to our Signature backgammon sets. Alexandra recommends turquoise and mother of pearl playing pieces to complement her Butterfly backgammon board, with personalisation of the pieces available.
