Sets of Highball Beer Glasses, Green

£154.00

Sets of glasses - Hand blown recycled glass Highballs, Nightlights of Mexico City collection. 

 

Hand blown glasses made 100% from recycled glass.

Each glass is made individually and requires the work of 6 people.

The glasses can present some size variations and bubbles from the process of production, we love these details that give history, individuality and texture to the pieces.

As an artisan made /handmade product sizes can change 

We work in partnership with traditional workshops around the country, many of which have been running for generations, some of them for more than 160 years. Faced with the global environmental crisis, we have taken solace in the ways in which communities across Mexico have for generations created useful objects with natural materials they find around them, and which at the end of the item’s useful life can help it to degrade back into the earth.  We are proud to be a part of that tradition and believe that an object made with love, thought and knowledge of technique can be reflected in objects that change our way of consumption.

Nightlights of Mexico City is a collection of classic glasses inspired by the nightlife of Mexico’s cultural golden age in the 1950s.

It was a time when the city life was cosmopolitan and the night was about dressing up and drinking cocktails in the club, watching the magnificent mambo dancers and musicians and then dancing a skeleton shake with the salsa and cumbia rhythms.
