  1. Our artisans take more than 5 months to carve a good quality chess set in wood

The artisans make sure to dry the wood for at least 3-4 months to make it best suitable for carving and lifelong usage. After drying, the carving of chessmen and chess board; joining different pieces; buffing; polishing etc. takes almost a month. This actually is a lot of time spent as compared to the regular chess sets manufactured in factories.

  1. These are 100% handmade, carved using traditional & tedious yet most effective tools

Contrary to what most of the carvers use, SouvNear artisans still believe in traditional ways of making the chess sets. They finely detail and intricately design each piece with hand tools and create luxurious master-pieces keeping in mind the peculiar taste of chess aficionados of the world.  The process is certainly time consuming and complicated but that’s what make these unique and best.

The strength and beauty to the construction of carcass depends on how the corners of the chessboard are joined. And our artisans use the most admired dovetail technique for the same. Highly preferred by expert wood-carvers but rarely used today, this technique makes SouvNear chess sets ideal to use lifelong with an everlasting grace and richness.

  1. The buffing of each chess set is done for at least 8 times at multiple stages before it gets the final touch

Buffing is what brings the real deep shine, smoothness, and grace to the wooden pieces. And our artisans make sure to buff the chess sets using sandpapers manually at multiple levels of carving. This process is very crucial yet rarely followed especially when the pieces are manufactured in bulk.
