Beldi glass is emblematic of Moroccan know-how. Each piece is made using a completely artisanal process. Made from recycled glass, Beldi glass is then fashioned according to the collections. Puffed in the mouth, small irregularities such as air bubbles can be noticeable which characterises its authenticity. Green reflections can be seen, they come from the recycled glass used to make it.
The Kessy Beldi studio has been located in Marrakech since 1946 and is part of the oldest patrimonial venture for the country. All the products are 100% handcrafted and mouth blown from recycled glass using reusable fuels. Minor deviations from size, shape or colour are a sign of the uniqueness of each pieces. In particular the visible bubbles are trapped breath from the very Artisan that made each glass piece. These imperfections are part of the charm and beauty that made us choose them.
