For Ramadan, Marina Home has launched the Tawla Traditions collection of four unique backgammon boards, all handmade in Greece from beautiful natural Oak, Wenge and Walnut woods. 

Each individual piece is a contemporary tribute to the ancient board game, and the concept behind the line is to reminisce in the nostalgia of precious moments spent playing this traditional game with family and friends growing up.

The boards are also hand-picked to become an heirloom worthy piece, as a keepsake in each family household and, more importantly, to be ‘Ramadan-appropriate gift’ in this month of intense hosting and sharing.

Designs include art deco Dragonfly, Arabian-inspired Antalya, Grove in natural walnut wood and mesmerising Illusion crafted using the art of marquetry. Making the gift even more personal, each Marina Home flagship store in the UAE has a pop-up over a scheduled weekend, where any accessory or Tawla board can be personalised via engraving for your own use. Nice touch. 

The four models of handmade boards are available in Marina Home showrooms across the UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Egypt and KSA. Bring on memory-making.
