Ten years. That’s how long it’s been since our first customer Alex bought the travel chess set from us. We still remember the buzz of excitement in the office as we processed and delivered this order. At that time, we had very few products in our catalog. But each of those was designed with a lot of thought and crafted with much love and attention to detail. We have grown manifold since then – we now have 300+ distinctive designs, a 50+ strong team, a larger office and multiple warehouses – but we still put in the same care while choosing our designs, and we feel the same excitement every time we launch the new set!
Year 2017 marks the tenth anniversary of Chessbazaar & our team is dedicatedly working on the 10th-anniversary chess set. Our few chess sets set the gold standard in their first decade and we are just getting started. “The best is yet to come.”
