    The Story Behind the Product

    35 year old Fahim Khan has been shaping stone into exquisite design since he was a 12 years old. His father was a government employee, so Khan had to learn the craft from other craftsmen. In Agra, where Khan lives, the primary crafts are leatherworking and stone working. Khan choose to work on stone and now makes soapstone chess-sets as well as many other decorative and utilitarian items, including candle-holders, Taj Mahal replicas and more. He says it takes over 15 days to carve a full set of chess pieces and ready the board. The final product sells for over 1300 rupees in the market. Ansari supports his large family; including his parents, his wife, and four sons.

    • Broken Chess Board

      When I received product it was chipping in places and I returned. So sad that it wasn't very good quality when I received it.

    • Well made!

      I bought this set for my husband and he loves it, even though I beat him at our first game. It's well made and beautiful. Highly recommended!

    • Board is very nice.....pieces fagile

      This was gift for my 28 yr old son. The board is very nice as is the velvet lined individual storage. Pieces are fragile. This will be an issue for him as he wants to teach his little girl chess. It was well wrapped & packaged, but one of the pieces arrived broken. My son wanted to keep it, so he glued it back together. I m sure he will replace the pieces eventually, so the storage probably then will be a mute point- hard to find new pieces to fit the storage shapes of these pieces

    • Soapstone Chess Set.

      Bought this as a Christmas gift for someone I know. It is a beautiful set to just have sitting around or using if you're a chess player. If not already a chess player nut, I'm hoping this guy becomes one and uses this beautiful set.

    • great product

      This was bought as a gift for my husband who has lost his previous chess set in a move. This is a beautiful replacement and he and our son fully enjoy it!

    • Nice product.

      This was an excellent gift for my boyfriend. The only problem we have had is that pieces break very easily, but with such a delicate material that is to be expected. The board and storage is very nice.

    • Cute but very poor quality.

      I was very dissatisfied with this product. The moment I opened and pulled it out of the tiny box it arrived in I knew I would be sending it back. It was really unfortunate because it was supposed to be a Christmas gift for my husband and there was no way I would present it to him. I sent it back and ordered an electronic one instead. The pieces looked as though they were hand carved by a child and the fabric on the bottom of the pieces were glued on wrong and hung over the edges of the pieces. Not recommended for a gift of any special occasion.

    • I was hoping for more

      I was a little disappointed with the chess set. I was expecting it to be nicer. The pieces are pretty small, and not very well carved. Kind of like you would expect if someone carved a thousand of them a day. The case is pretty cheaply made, too; especially the fabric on the interior. I ordered it as a gift for my adult son, and once it arrived I realized that I could not give him that. I went to the mall and bought a nicer carved wooden chess set, although I did end up paying more for it

    • good set

      The pieces and board of this chess set are very cool! It is a very attractive chess set, especially for the price. It was quite the deal in my opinion! Most chess sets I looked at were much more expensive. The inside padding that keeps the chess pieces in place was pretty cheap and did not look as nice as the rest of the set but it does its job in keeping the pieces nice and organized. Love this set!
