Rustic Chess Set // Large
This Rustic Chess Set is expertly crafted from solid Tunisian olive wood. The natural edges feature beautiful olive wood tree bark for a stunning, organic finish to this elegant design. Standing three inches tall on top of four olive wood legs, this gorgeous set is as much a work of art as it is an enjoyable game. The board itself comes equipped with two drawers for storing the included chess pieces.
BeldiNest sources traditional handmade items from workshops in the Berber region of North Africa. Their wood products come from Sfax, Tunisia, where the company's shop of professional woodworkers produces beautiful and high-quality olive wood products for their customers. BeldiNest works closely with wood carvers in the area to create their unique designs and skillfully-crafted works of art. Once the Tunisian olive trees become nonproductive, they are harvested and replaced, and the wood from the trees is dried in the sun for a year. The dried wood is then cut into usable pieces and taken to the workshop to be carved.
