#FirstClassFriday: Ralph Lauren Home Mahjong Set
Ralph Lauren Home has joined the ranks of Louis Vuitton and Alfred Dunhill to debut their first mahjong set for the fashion-conscious. Released this month in time for the Chinese New Year festivities on 28 January, this Spring 2017 entrant comes in a brass frame and is leather wrapped for a luxurious tactile experience. Each mahjong set features cherry wood playing tiles that have been meticulously hand-painted.
The American homeware arm of the luxury brand has gambled on game sets before. Among their collection of merry-making pursuits include a backgammon set made of leather and polished nickel accents, a tic-tac-toe and poker set in walnut and embossed leather and a massive five-in-one game set. Their mahjong set is a bold gesture to appeal to the Asian market, something we very much welcome with open arms.
