Like many of you, when Winter rolls around, eating in and dinner parties are much more appealing to me than braving the chill of dining out. Making dinner parties or weeknights in special is always a fun challenge, so I make use of beautiful glassware and candles at all times.
I've recently fallen in love with two newer ranges by Beldi & Father Rabbit, making eating in a treat every time.
These simple but beautiful glasses are handblown from recycled glass by Moroccan artisans since 1940.
Recently the very last glass factory in Morocco still making hand-blown glasses, was saved from permanent closure. Skilled artisans now continue to make these simple, traditional tea glasses and bowls. Made from recycled glass, the green ones from wine bottles, Beldi glasses are dishwasher safe on glass setting.
"The manufacturing process of glass beldi is to recycle two tons per day of flat glass and glass bottles wastes, remelted in a furnace heated to about 1600 degrees and kept at temperature 24 hours 24. The blown glasses are cut by hand using a oxygen and gas flame." - Beldi
I'll be using Beldi glasses to serve wine, water, tea, and the jugs for when we have guests over for punch or mocktails.
