Curator's Notes

The Collection
Recycled Moroccan glass is often known as Beldi glass. Beldi refers to something that’s made by hand, locally, piece-by-piece, with traditional expertise. It connotes charm, and one-of-a-kind. A beldi thing may have minor imperfections, and it's precisely this character which makes it beautiful, and which tells its unique story. The tiny, occasional bubbles in each glass endear it all the more to the drinker.

The Design

A trio of clean, elegant pitchers ranging from a petite creamer to a tall carafe. All with shaped spouts and without handles, reminiscent of milk bottles, they’re especially good for juices, sauces, oils, and vinegars.

The Material

Recycled glass is both fine and durable, and has a faint blue-green tinge that catches the light.The original method of working with glass, mouth-blowing, or glassblowing, is an ancient art which requires precision and speed, and involves using a tube to blow molten glass into a bubble in order to shape it, before letting it cool and harden.

The Supplier

When the small Casablanca-based factory which supplied much of Marrakech with their recycled glasses shut down, our partner jumped to action. He went to the field to learn the traditions of the craft first hand. In 2014, he launched his own recycled glass factory in Marrakech, working with designers and artisans to put their own spin on one of Morocco’s oldest heritage industries.
