The African and Arabic inspired design. 200 sets only – £55.00
The distinctive 5asideCHESS yellow and black 5 x 6 has been patterned with a subtle
traditional African Chitenge created by Alexandra Waldron to celebrate her 3 month
volunteering Mission in Zambia during 2019. Alex raised funds to complete her INCS
certificate with the VSO visiting schools where she taught, played and presented a
number of schools In Serenje with sets all this alongside her main volunteering duties
teaching sexual Health education.
The traditional 8 x 8 board design has been covered with a striking and colourful
Arabic inspired tessellation. This unique and playable image was created by textile
Designer Heidi Muragh-Smith as part of her textile design degree course at Cardiff
University where she was awarded a 1st. Heidi submitted a number of designs before
her final flower design was selected. The floor of the new mosque in Mill Road,
Cambridge (opened in 2019) was part of her inspiration.
