ABOUT ALICE TEMPERLEY BEAD
Limited edition of 10 pieces, a collaboration with iconic fashion designer Alice Temperley.
“I’m very excited to collaborate with Alexandra, whose work I have long admired. Alexandra’s boards reawaken a joyous childhood emotion that translates so well for Temperley’s fun-loving ethos” - Alice Temperley
Just as Alice takes a detailed and luxurious approach to each item of clothing she makes, I have done the same with the backgammon board. We wanted to celebrate craftsmanship, fashion and the Temperley brand. We’ve distilled all that into a beautiful design that is completely unique and enduring. The board will be enjoyed for many fashionable years to come.
Inside – Natural laurel burl backgammon board with a photographic bead design playing surface, finished with hand-applied lacquer.
