A fun gift for a game‒loving host, the Backgammon Box is handcrafted from shesham wood, haldu wood, padauk wood, steam wood, and green felt by artisans working with Noah's Ark, a fair trade organization in Moradabad, India. The cost of metals has skyrocketed in recent years, which has had a devastating effect on the local economy and on the lives of individual artisans. Noah's Ark has worked hard to train artisans to use alternative metals and materials and to create appealing designs.
