Mexican Blue Rim Glasses



What: These beautiful glasses are an iconic piece of Mexican domestic life - perfect for a morning OJ ar an evening G&T! Available in two sizes, each glass is unique and some small irregularities are a reflection of the production process. 

How: Hand blown glass made in Mexico from recycled drink bottles and other scrap glass. The glass is collected (often from the street) and sold to the small family run workshop that makes our glassware. The bottles are then melted down and then hand-blown and shaped into something new. Available in two sizes:

Tumblers - 9.5cm x 7.5cm

High Balls - 15cm x 7.5cm

Glasses are sold as dishwasher safe, though we prefer to rinse them out with warm, soapy water. 

Who: Handmade in Mexico, and imported by Tumi, a leading fairtrade Latin American company.  

Why: These unusual glasses are bright and cheery, and help to provide a steady income to workers in Mexico.
