Poland is another manufacturing hub of chess boards, specializing in the contemporary European designing and workmanship. The Polish facilities offer wide varieties of chess boards such as decorative chess boards, stone chess boards, amateur chess boards and chess boards for three players. The various quality standards like craftsmanship, weight of the boards, appropriate polishing and customized production are few hallmarks of the Polish chess industry.
