Alexandra Llewellyn

Board game maker

When she first began to make backgammon boards ten years ago, Alexandra Llewellyn would never have dreamt of where her passion for beautiful games would take her, from Afghanistan and Azerbaijan to Miami and the Caribbean. Originally she trained as a fine artist, before working in product development at a charity, which gave her the confidence to launch her own studio in 2010: “I had planned to launch a whole lifestyle range, but backgammon and other games quickly took over.” Today, she works with over twenty specialist workshops around the UK, with at least ten involved in each bespoke commission. Clients range from private individuals to multi-starred hospitality brands, such as Eden Roc in St Barths, with each board, set and table designed by Alexandra herself: “Games are such a lovely niche to occupy.”
