White wine round glass with stem, handmade from recycled glass in Swaziland. Dimensions: 18 cm tall, holds 220 ml
As each piece is hand-made, no two pieces are exactly the same and glasses may vary slightly in size.
In the tiny African Kingdom of Swaziland a small group of Swazi craftsmen and women use age old artistry to breathe life into beautiful unique glassware items.
The products, which include a range of tableware, drinking glasses, vases, jugs and ornamental African animals, are all handmade from recycled glass. Most of this is from soft drink bottles, gathered from all over Swaziland .
Not only are the people of Swaziland encouraged to collect the bottles, but Ngwenya Glass works with the local schools to instil in the children a sense of environmental awareness. In exchange for building materials and the sponsorship of the soccer team, the students participate in roadside clean-up campaigns.
Colours and motifs may vary slightly from item pictured due to the unique hand-crafted nature of this product. Price includes 10% GST Packing & Shipping charges added at checkout
