Every gift tells a story
Artisans process two tons of recycled glass every day. It is hard to believe that not so long ago, Morocco's last glass-blowing factory was on the brink of closing down. This would have meant the loss of jobs and a long tradition of glass blowing in the region. Largesse's partners could not see this happen, and stepped in, moving manufacturing to Marrakech and preserving the livelihood of the glassblowers. The glassmaking process involves melting glass down in a furnace set to 1600 degrees Fahrenheit for 24 hours before it is blown and cut by hand. Cooling takes place slowly to ensure strength in the final product. All broken pieces and scraps from this process are added back in to be remelted, ensuring that no glass is wasted.
