Berluti Now Sells Sleek Handcrafted Playing Cards For Over P6,000 a Deck
Since its inception in 1895, Italian menswear brand Berluti has been crafting fine clothing and luxury goods that uphold its leathermaking heritage. Unbeknownst to many, the LVMH-owned brand also takes pride in another kind of craftsmanship that other brands might overlook: making playing cards. Berluti’s luxe leisure venture features its cards as one of its most unique draws.
Made in France, the set comes with two playing decks, one in black and one in white, and they’re housed in a sleek gray box that makes it easy to carry around. While they may seem like your ordinary deck of cards, a closer look will reveal the highest quality paper in the finest finish. Plus, each card is carefully lined with silver after it's been printed and is further examined to ensure that no flaws or misprints are found.
Sure, it’s a splurge for a deck of playing cards, but those who take their games seriously might think of it as a stylish investment for the home—it’s an eye-catching piece that will surely intrigue any visitor.
Berluti has other lifestyle pieces that you might want to consider if you’re looking for an upgrade. There’s a poker set that comes with a handmade leather case, a soccer ball in cobalt blue leather, and classic luggage tags for the most discerning traveler. For the tech-savvy, Berluti also creates gadget accessories such as wireless charging docks, charger kits, and sleek leather phone cases.
