From cufflink boxes to duffels, to belts and gloves and briefcases, Pickett offers a dizzying array of fine leather accessories. All of Pickett’s leather goods are thoughtfully designed and handmade in England. Though many items are available in a variety of colors (including less traditional hues like violet, lime green, or baby blue) Pickett designs are simple and classic, echoing the traditions of much older marks. Founded in 1988 by Trevor Pickett, the house prides itself on maintaining the highest level of craftsmanship and offers furnishings to complete every gentleman’s wardrobe. A selection of Pickett goods, including their leather bound flasks, games, and journals, are available exclusively in Los Angeles at ALTAI.
The oldest known board game, backgammon was invented 5,000 years ago, and evidence of its popularity can be found in cultures around the globe. As long as one player has a fair pair of dice, a board and pips could be devised with as little as a piece of paper and a handful of coins. Designer Alexandra Llewellyn takes a decidedly more luxurious approach. Handcrafted by a team of artisans, Llewellyn’s exquisite backgammon boards are made with exotic woods, metals, and semi-precious stones. This particular model features a bevy of feathers in place of half of the traditional triangular points. Alexandra Llewellyn’s series of backgammon boards is available exclusively at ALTAI in the United States.
