Our first Leather Chess board was created in 1961 after a request by Alfred Dunhill’s then Chairman, Richard Dunhill. At the time we were making and supplying leather-bound books to this great British brand.
Our leather chessboard is still made in the same location it was back in 1961, using the same skills which were handed down by Geoffrey himself. Although a lot has changed with the business since this first commission including technological advances and a third generation director; the attention to detail and quality still remain.
