N°17/1 Ghana has a long tradition of basket weaving with a technique suited almost exclusively for round shapes. In collaboration with Accra based Kathrin Eckhardt Studio and the local weavers we developed a slightly different method for our rectangular pieces that are handwoven and dyed in Teshie. The two different sizes are available in natural and blue with the additional yellow version for SS17.
— Medium (ca. 40 x 42 x 20cm)
— Large (ca. 42 x 46 x 22cm)
— Yellow (SS17)
N°17/2 Backgammon is believed to have originated at around 3’000 B.C. in Mesopotamia and is the oldest known recorded game in history. It’s popularity increased again in the 1960’s due to the efforts of Prince Alexis Obelensky who organized the first Official Backgammon World Championships in the Bahamas, the winning of which became backgammon’s highest honour.
