Verre Beldi artisans process two tons of recycled glass every day. It is hard to believe that less than ten years ago, Morocco’s last glass-blowing factory was on the brink of closing down forever. The Beldi group 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.
