Our travel range is not only available of on website but also available on eBay, Amazon and Etsy. We supply a range of different chains with our chess and backgammon sets, so you are aware of a trustworthy and reliable brand. Our travel chess sets are quite unique and specially made with Chessgammon offering a slightly larger travel size. We find that a significant portion of travel sets are too small and therefore we have heavily invested our time in designing travel sets to a custom and larger size. Each set has taken it’s time to meticulously design and to allow plenty hours of use.
Although there are a range of different woods used to craft each set, primarily it is this material that is used with chess sets due to it’s durability, long lasting characteristic and the ease of skill can be displayed on each set. Wood tends to be a very easy material to shape and craft and therefore each piece of wood with good quality will be dried for a lengthy period of time. We know for sure the wood we use has been prepared 2 years in advance to prevent warping after a few weeks of us in our British climate. Therefore Sheesham although hard to source tends to be the wood of choice, not only due to it’s characterisitics but it’s colour and the value it holds due to restrictions places in India. Therefore only the largest suppliers are able to source this type of wood and Chessgammon only deals with the best available suppliers from Amritsar India.
Wood and it’s Popularity?
We always wonder why wood tends to be the most popular of materials when crafting luxury chess sets. This is not only due to characterisitics of being tough and long lasting but easily adaptable to craft into any structure. This can be seen when the smallest sets have the same exact attention to detail as a large luxury chess set. Due to the cost wood being effective we are able to bring the price of our luxury and travel chess sets right down. Fortunately wood is available in abundance and it’s ability to offer as an eye catching piece of material and allow us to use and craft into various shapes and forms makes it the most well used material for our chess sets. Wood is again used for our staunton chess sets made for tournament and recreational use.

This is available in our executive range, we stock a very latge number of staunton chess sets available in different board colours, piece and design combinations.
