Bone Chess Sets
Wait, what? Bone chess sets?
Believe it or not, yes! And they’re quite popular too. Ivory has been the traditional material for chess sets for centuries, but bone is becoming a more and more popular option.
So what’s the appeal? Let’s take a look.

They make excellent conversation starters, and they are also great for collectors.

Bone also absorbs dye well so your set of camels will be changing color constantly in no time at all – just like life itself..
