In Oct. 2020, Louis Vuitton unveiled its jade-engraved mahjong set that reportedly costs NT2.3 million (S$108,727).

New design

This year, the high-end fashion brand is bringing back the Vanity Mahjong but with new contents.

The updated Vanity Mahjong NV showcases a pull-out trunk with the brand's signature monogram design on canvas and natural cowhide trimming.

Hand-painted tiles

Within the trunk is a lush blue lining with six drawers that are filled with:

  • 144 tiles and five spare tiles
  • Four wooden rulers
  • Four wooden dice
  • A rounds cube and plate

Designed by Hong Kong design agency Studio Adjective, the hand-painted and hand-carved mahjong tiles are made of American walnut and ivory composite stone.

Each item in the set is also etched with Louis Vuitton's four-petal motif.
