Old Fashioned Glass - Multi Rim
This handblown double old fashion was made by skilled glass workers in Guatemala. By using recycled glass to make this product, waste was diverted from the landfill and less energy was used than required to produce new glass. The cooperative, COPAVIC, formed in 1976 when seventeen artisans came together and reopened a former glass factory in Cantel, Guatemala.
