We love global stories, which is why we create handmade products filled with them. Every aspect of our hand made glass storage jars carry meaning and tales, all the way from East Africa.
Our glass storage jars are produced from local and international wine bottles, we have reclaimed these bottles here in Melbourne and have hand cleaned, hand cut and hand finished each glass. This collection features clear, blue and green glass, some with bumps in the base and others are flat. If you prefer a particular style please contact us when ordering.
Our hand carved custom made lids are created in Zanzibar. Each lid has provided sustainable fair-trade employment in Zanzibar for artisan women and men. When walking around Stone Town in Zanzibar you will see so many ornate hand carved doors. These lids are such a perfect little glimpse of the beauty and creativity of Zanzibar! It is such an honour for us to support and employ locals to continue the tradition of hand carving. These lids are extraordinary, and these products are incredibly unique, created sustainably for a long and useful future.
Each Upcycled Glass Jar comes in a handmade East African Kanga fabric gift bag.
