Wood chess sets are by far the most popular type of chess set used for playing chess. The intrinsic beauty of handcrafted wooden chess pieces whether simple or a highly detailed sculpture is a traditional element of the game that has never been improved upon. Our wood pieces come from the Amritsar region in India where the art of hand crafting chess pieces has been handed down for generations over hundreds of years. Our wood chess boards are made in Italy, Spain, and here in the USA. We matched our pieces with the ideal chess board to create the best possible combination.
