The Chessboard by Au Départ is an elegant and modern hand-made design object, part of the Music & Games collection. The rubberised cotton Canvas with the iconic monogram print all-over makes the case wear and scratch resistant. Profiled in Palmellato A.S.E calf leather, it includes a coated wood chessboard, a complete set of checkers with silver and brass finish and several compartments in soft black velvet, designed to store each piece.
Characterised by a heavy hand feel, the natural Canvas is very tear-resistant and extremely protective. Made of twisted yarns, this contemporary material is embellished by the Au Départ cubic monogram printed all over. The Palmellato A.S.E. leather is an homage to writer and adventurer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, who chose Au Départ for his travels.
This resistant calf leather with a soft hand feel bears his initials in the name to celebrate Saint-Exupéry's timeless style.
The Palmellato A.S.E. leather features an exclusive and stylish look thanks to its unique cross-hatched pattern.
