This exquisite wine glass hails from the heart of Jalisco, Western Mexico, embodying the spirit and tradition of skilled craftsmanship. The workshop, led by the esteemed Doña Josefina, is not just a place of artisanal creation but a sanctuary providing stable employment opportunities for socially disadvantaged individuals and offering valuable apprenticeships to the youth. Each piece is crafted from 100% recycled glass, championing sustainability and environmental consciousness.

The benefits of using recycled glass are manifold. It requires significantly less energy because it melts at lower temperatures compared to the raw materials needed for new glass production. Furthermore, glass can be recycled indefinitely without any loss in quality, contributing to considerable savings in raw materials such as quartz sand, soda, and lime. This not only conserves resources but also minimizes the environmental impact associated with traditional glassmaking processes.

Every wine glass in this collection is a testament to the exceptional skill of mouth-blown glass techniques, making each item a unique work of art. Variations in shape, height, and diameter are not flaws but a celebration of its individuality, showcasing a piece of Mexican craftsmanship heritage.
