Our Story

Our story

Founded in 2012, Purling originated from an idea when playing chess on a beach at dusk. Launching chess in luxurious materials - Ebony, Boxwood, Maple & Alabaster, hand carved and lacquered, with Italian Nappa Leather felts & the Purling logo embossed in 18 carat gold on the base, Purling chess sets, soon established themselves as firm favourites. Extending the product offer, through collaborations with local & international artists, to create "one off" pieces, that are as much an art statement, as a playable game, complimented our core designs.

The introduction of new product categories and collaborations with global luxury retailers, auction houses and premium global publications further elevated Purling within the luxury games sector.

Now celebrating our 10th year, Purling continues to focus on delivering the highest standards, quality and craftsmanship in beautiful games, that are made for life and encourage you, to - Make Time to Play.
