Crafted in the heart of Jalisco, a western region of Mexico known for its rich traditions and skilled craftsmanship, emerges a product that perfectly encapsulates the essence of sustainable artistry - the eco-friendly drinking glass. At the helm of the responsible workshop is Doña Josefina, a visionary leader dedicated to the social integration of the underprivileged. Her commitment not only propels individuals back into the workforce but also nurtures the next generation into the esteemed profession of glassblowing.

The material backbone of this unique creation is 100% recycled glass, an eco-conscious choice that profoundly benefits both the environment and the craftsmanship. The use of recycled glass significantly lowers energy consumption since it melts at considerably lower temperatures compared to the raw materials traditionally needed for glass production. Moreover, glass's ability to be melted down and reshaped numerous times without losing quality is a testament to its sustainable nature, preserving precious resources such as quartz sand, soda, and lime, and ultimately reducing the environmental footprint associated with its manufacturing.

Each of these drinking glasses is a true work of art, mouth-blown by skilled artisans to produce a piece that is as unique as it is sustainable. Variations in shape, height, and diameter are not seen as imperfections but rather celebrated as marks of uniqueness, highlighting the skillful hands that crafted them and the ancient Mexican tradition of glassblowing.
