Eco-conscious<br />

PADI is a diving company<br />

which has helped remove<br />

1,829,940 plastic bottles<br />

from the ocean – equivalent<br />

to 26,588kg of plastic,<br />

through a range of products<br />

that are made from<br />

recycled ocean plastic,<br />

from towels to rash guards<br />

to face masks. As well as<br />

offering diving certification<br />

training, open water and<br />

scuba diving courses, PADI<br />

offer real-life mermaid<br />

experiences! PADI mermaid<br />

courses allow your special<br />

fantasy of life under the sea.<br />

The programme teaches<br />

the fundamentals of diving<br />

safely with mermaid<br />

equipment and costuming<br />

along with basic diving<br />

skills. No dive experience<br />

is necessary and children<br />

as young as 6 years old can<br />

become a PADI Mermaid<br />

with classes in the UK.<br />

Beyond the fun and wonder of mermaiding is a much deeper<br />

purpose – PADI Mermaids are a voice for the ocean as inspiring<br />

EFFORTLESS GLAMOUR<br />

Luxury Leisure<br />

Alexandra Llewellyn’s<br />

beautifully crafted,<br />

intricately detailed games<br />

turn play into something<br />

magnificent. Alexandra’s<br />

first encounter with<br />

backgammon was as a<br />

child in Cairo. In the city’s<br />

backstreets, she enjoyed<br />

her first games with an<br />

elderly local. Born in a<br />

completely different time<br />

and place, they were still<br />

able to enjoy the game,<br />

and each other’s company,<br />

because backgammon<br />

requires no common<br />

language to understand.<br />

The wonderful universality<br />

of the game, which<br />

transcends cultures and<br />

generations, planted<br />

the seed for Alexandra<br />

to create her first handpainted<br />

backgammon<br />

boards.<br />

Alluding to the importance of geometry to the game, the Geometrix<br />

Backgammon Set in Satin Walnut wood box features a recurring pattern<br />

of shapes and symbols, realised in intricate wood marquetry. £13,500<br />
