Created by Hella El Khiari and Thomas Egoumenides, Flaÿou is a Tunis-based integrative design studio that works in object, graphic and environmental design. Chich-Bich, which means backgammon in Tunisian Arabic, is Flaÿou’s collection of playful board games inspired by Egoumenides’ love of backgammon and the traditional pottery of the Sejnane region, where local artisans have worked with clay for more than 3,000 years.
This special-edition backgammon set updates Flaÿou’s Berber-influenced design with brilliant, neon blue details. Inspired by the traditional pottery of the Sejnane region, where local artisans have worked with clay for more than 3,000 years, each board and its pieces are crafted entirely by hand, from the extraction of local clay to the shaping and firing of the board. Your backgammon set arrives in a pizza box with a notebook about the collection and bags for the pieces.
Includes terracotta board and pieces, two olive wood die, a notebook about the collection, and bags for the pieces.
Box 10 1/4”L x 10 1/4”W x 1 1/2”H
Board 9 1/4”L x 9 1/4”W x 3/4”H
