Housed in a sturdy box with foil stamping, this premium deck of rainbow playing cards features a full spectrum of colors on their face and a uniform black and white pattern on their backs.
Playing cards were invented in Imperial China. They were found in China as early as the 9th century during the Tang Dynasty (618–907). Playing cards first entered Southern Europe in the 14th century, probably from Mamluk Egypt, using the Mamluk suits of cups, coins, swords, and polo-sticks, and which are still used in traditional Latin decks.

ABOUT THE MAKER
Fredericks & Mae is a design studio reveling in the art of the gift. [Its owners] are committed to bringing objects into the world that prompt wide eyes, inexplicable delight, and full body chills. A well chosen gift can be a bolt of connection - a beacon that reminds us of our relationships. We are ever-vigilant for the commodification of joy and the dangers of material accumulation - but love to surround ourselves with a few well chosen beautiful things. Every mantle is an altar, each shelf a shrine, a coffee table a collection of things that tell a story about where we come from and where we want to go.
Fredericks & Mae is helmed by Gabriel Fredericks Cohen and Giovi Mae Signorile. The two met through a shared love of materials. Fredericks & Mae started in the piles of feathers, thread, gold and paper that filled their first studio in 2007.
