Nothing beats a good old-fashioned board game. If you can do it in style too, then all the better. Okapi’s ostrich leather backgammon set is a truly elegant addition to any home. Easily rolled up and fastened, it unfolds to reveal a gorgeous leather board with checkers and dice. Crafted from ostrich leather which is a by-product from the meat processing industry, it has been made in South Africa and is entirely sustainable. It’s a thumbs up from us. All materials are sustainably sourced as a bi-product of the existing free-range farming industry in South Africa.
Founded in Cape Town, South Africa in 2008 by Hanneli Rupert, Okapi is an African luxury lifestyle brand. Named after the elusive antelope otherwise known as the ‘African unicorn’, Okapi draws influence from the mysticism of Africa, exploration, magic and the natural world. We source all of our materials in the Western Cape of South Africa and also do 100% of our manufacturing in the area too. This is a simple approach to promoting and elevating heritage craftsmanship whilst also creating sustainable job opportunities within local communities.
