Here at Galastar we are passionate about both chess as well as Africa. To that end we manufacture unique themed chess sets of the highest quality. Each chess set is lovingly manufactured by our talented team of craftsmen and woman right here in South Africa and then packaged and sold to adorn the homes and offices of chess connoisseurs across the world. This intimate manufacturing process involves hand painting each chess piece, which is made from high-grade ground stone, to ensure a quality, unique product. More than just ordinary chess sets, our chess pieces and chess boards tell the story of Africa; it's animals, its tribes, its history and its struggles. To own a Galastar chess set is to own a functional piece of art, beautifully designed for your pleasure which will make a stunning addition to your collection.
