PLA Chess uses quality materials. Nero Marquina marble is a high quality, black stone marble extracted from the region of Markina, Basque Country in the North of Spain. It has gained recognition worldwide due to its beautiful, genuine black color. The chessboard is laser engraved with a polygonal texture to compliment the look of the chess pieces. The textured squares are the black squares, non-textured squares are the white squares. Chessboards are designed so that a white square is in each player's near-right corner, in this case non-textured square will be in the near-right corner. All pieces are hand casted in resin with a polished look, easy to hold. They have same color felt pads at the bottom for a soft feel on the chessboard and are weighted for stability with hidden weights while resin casting process.
