Made of Vegetable-Tanned Leather, This Chess Set Rolls-Up Like a Scroll

Chess is an art, and art deserves both iteration and recognition. Sadly, the recognition came after Netflix released “The Queen’s Gambit,” which garnered young folk’s attention toward the centuries-old game. As far as iteration is concerned, the game of chess has received numerous changes over time – evolving from wooden boards to plastic boards, glass sets, and online gaming. The newest inclusion in the long line of various chess sets is the roll-up chess set by Muntok.

Muntok is a Turkish studio renowned for making high-quality leather accessories like knife bags and aprons. The Istanbul-based studio has recently made a vegetable-tanned leather chess set. Once rolled up, the foldable chess set holds resemblance to scrolls used in ancient times, and can easily be carried in backpacks.

You may have seen roll-up chess boards in the past, but the leather makes this particular piece an absolute peach. The spaces are stitched in a precise manner with some squares left blank while others are cross-stitched. The chess set has a faint smell of new leather, which will dissipate over time (just like your leather wallet).

The design of chess pieces is not the typical one you are familiar with. They are circular and similar to carrom coins. The pieces are made from a leather disc with a hand-embossed rank icon.

Once you are done playing, stow your coins inside the storage tube and close it with a leather strap, which is finished in multiple colors. Measuring around 35cm x 26cm, the chess set is available for purchase on Etsy for £94 (approx. $100).
