About Andrea Llewellyn
Alexandra has played backgammon all her life, and her love of the game was developed as a child in Cairo; the rattle of dice on large wooden crate-boards signaled the game in play, as she strolled through the streets with her Egyptian step-grandfather. As she travelled more, her interest in backgammon evolved, over countless games. She became enthralled by the idea that board games operate as an independent vocabulary requiring neither common language nor culture, and the idea that games bring people together. Launched in December 2010, Alexandra Llewellyn Designs embody an exquisitely unique vision of the oldest recorded board game in the world. These game boards are both a stocked collection of their in-house designs that can be made available immediately or personalised with engraved or painted messages, initials, and dates. Commissions are also available with their exquisite semi-precious stone and brass playing pieces. Alexandra Llewellyn
