Self-described military pacifist brand maharishi presents a handcrafted Bonsai Championship Backgammon Set. Made to order by the same craftsmen behind the Alfred Dunhill sets, these maharishi-exlusives are imbued with the brand’s signature palette that pairs orange with camouflage.
While this combination suggests a purely military influence, the use of the bonsai forest camouflage — maharishi’s house pattern — is an attempt to distance camouflage from this association and guide it back to its naturalistic and artistic roots. To this end, the set comes as a lockable case finished with hand-tooled bonsai camouflage leather and features, in addition to an orange playing surface and dice, and stylized dice cups in both camo and a Dragons vs. Tigers graphic.
The £1,500 GBP (approximately $2,450 USD) set can be ordered now through maharishi’s website.
