Chess Pieces

PLA Chess is handmade in sunny San Diego, California. This chess set has a sleek, sophisticated appearance, putting a modern twist on a traditional game.

PLA Chess uses quality materials. The board is made out of bamboo, laser engraved with a polygonal texture to compliment the look of the chess pieces and finished with a satin top coat. Pieces are hand casted in resin or 3D printed and weighted. They have a smooth finish, easy to hold.

Why bamboo? Bamboo is a super fast growing and a naturally renewable tree-like grass. It requires little maintenance to farm as it doesn’t need any pesticides or herbicides and very little water to grow. This new material is one of the first materials we chose to make PLA Concept more sustainable.

PLA Chess is an amazing gift for anyone who loves playing chess or wants to display their set as a decorative accessory for their home. You can even customize the set with an engraved message. If you want custom engraving, please add Customization (Laser Engraving) item to your cart too. We'll contact you for the customization options after your order.

PLA Chess sets are made in small numbers. Other than the laser engraving for the chessboards, the whole set is handmade by us after you order. Because of this, few sets are alike, and many are unique.

*** Please note that 3D printed items are made by adding very thin layers of plastic, one layer at a time. Slight imperfections / visible layer lines are expected, but I work hard to avoid them.
