Olive tree is known as the Tree of Life due to its benefits for the humankind from ancient times up to nowdays.   Olive wood is very hard, strong and durable. Heartwood is a cream or yellowish brown, with darker brown wavy grains.  The handcrafted Olive Backgammon with side racks is available in 3 sizes.  The playing field is a combination of olive wood with wenge & mahogany points. 

The Olive tree boasts a cultural history that reaches back to antiquity. It is a very thick, hard and durable wood and has an understated texture, streaked with brown veins and softened by cloud-shaped flecks. Olive burl is highly prized for its turbulent markings and striking golden brown color contrasts. 
It's known for over 7000 years and has a symbolic connotations in cultures around the world. The olive branch was often a symbol of abundance, glory and peace. The leafy branches of the olive tree were ritually offered to deities and powerful figures as emblems of benediction and purification, and they were used to crown the victors of friendly games and bloody wars. Over the years, the olive has been the symbol of peace, wisdom, glory, fertility, power and purity.
 
 

This backgammon is handmade using the art of marquetry (also spelled as marqueterie) which is the art and craft of applying pieces of veneer to a structure to form decorative patterns and designs. 
Our skillful workers use this method in order to create the inside design of the backgammon.
