Glass tumbler

£15.00

These low tumblers are for having a fine time sipping whisky. Or for stirring up a cocktail for a friend. You can fill them with red wine and pretend to be in an old-school French bistro. You can pack them with ice and mint and sparkling water for lunch on a summer day.

They are also made entirely from recycled glass and hand blown by workers trained by experts from, amongst other places, the renowned Murano glass factory in Venice.

Ngwenya are a win for us on so many levels. Their products are elegant and great quality. Everything is made from recycled glass, with much of it collected by the surrounding community who are then paid for their work. They also provide the area with skilled, stable jobs in the factory itself. 

Then - and this is just brilliant - they run their furnace on old cooking oil collected from KFC outlets. What’s not to love?

Minor bubbles, blowing lines and variations in height and thickness are unavoidable in mouth blown glass and constitute clearest proof of an article individually handmade from 100% recycled glass.

Measurements: volume 500ml; rim diameter 85mm; bowl diameter 95mm; stem and foot height 35mm; overall height 145mm.
