Made in: Eswatini
Artisan Group: Khutsala Artisan Center
This gorgeous checkerboard set is made from bloodwood trees grown in Eswatini. In an attempt to reduce wood waste, both the dark and the light squares are made from the scraps of wood leftover from the Charcuterie Board production. In addition, the checker pieces are made of SwaziMUD ceramics, baked to perfection in the Khutsala artisan kilns. This checkerboard set is so beautiful that you will want to keep it on display even when you're not playing!
Size: board - 14x14"; checkers - 1.5" diameter
This item is handmade by Heart for Africa, a Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) artisan partner in Eswatini.
