Handmade Alligator Backgammon
Due to the nature of the material and the bespoke nature of our products; our Alligator Backgammon can’t often be bought off the shelf. Perfection takes time, skilled craftsmen and Alligator, which we try not to hold in stock.
Large Backgammons often require Alligators over 50 years old so be able to achieve the cuts required for the cases, so that the spine of the skin follows the spine of the case exactly. Often many skins are required to make a board as there are areas that are unusable of where the scales are too hard to work into intricate areas or due to legs areas and other difficult parts of the skin being unsuitable for cutting.

Please note that the lead time for articles like this is often 6 months due to the CITES regulations in the country of origin where the skins originate from and the other countries they have to pass through to arrive here in the UK and then again to be re-exported to their final destination. Do not worry, – our team handles this process regularly and you will only get involved at the final stage when these are processed by FedEx and your local customs.
