Asymmetrical Recycled Aperitif Glasses
Set of 2 stylised aperitif glasses, crafted from 100% recycled glass. The stem is set slightly to the side, in an asymmetrical modernist design. Perfectly imperfect. They look a little like they’re defying gravity – it’s a wonder to see! Each glass holds a tongue-tingling 90ml.
These handcrafted short glasses have been hand blown into a mould by expert glass workers in Swaziland. Their ethical workshop is an eco warrior’s dream, handcrafting each and every glass from waste soft drink bottles they gather themselves from the four corners of Swaziland.

This unique story unfolded in 1979. A glassblowing factory called Swazi Glass Craft (trading as Ngwenya Glass) was set up as a Swedish Aid Project, employing and training Swazi’s in the age-old art of glassblowing. These days, they employ over 60 skilled glassblowers to create original pieces of art and train the apprentices.
Ngwenya Glass isn’t only an inspiring success story – it’s an environmentalist’s dream. The products (ranging from tableware to jugs and quirky glass animals) are all crafted from 100% recycled glass. And where do they find all this glass, I hear you ask? From waste soft drink bottles, gathered from every corner of Swaziland.
