Bianco Carrara Gray Marble Chess Set
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. Bianco Carrara is quarried from a bedrock quarry in Carrara, Italy and is one of the many white marbles produced in this area. It is no surprise that this was the marble chosen by Michelangelo to sculpt works such as the David. Highly valued since ancient times for its extraordinary whiteness, with slight bluish and greyish hues, very soft and with a very fine grain, Bianco Carrara marble evokes imperial Rome and the Renaissance. The chessboard is laser engraved with a polygonal texture to compliment the look of the chess pieces. 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.
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. Contact us for customizing options.
PLA Chess sets are made in small batches. Other than the laser engraving for the chessboards and bags, the whole set is handmade by us after you order. Because of this, few sets are alike, and many are unique.
