I bought these tumblers as they tick all our boxes: fairtrade, upcycled, super functional and made by a family-run business providing income for over 500 families.
A great eco product, using 100% recycled glass, which is broken up, washed and melted before being mouth-blown and shaped into the finished product.
You know how much we love Upcycled goods at RainbowLife and supporting a family business to boot!
These recycled tumblers are a solid piece of kitchenware and a talking piece on any table.
Imagine the stories if the bottles could talk! Anyone been to Bolivia? I haven't yet but it's on my bucket list.
They go nicely with our Recycled Glass Jug
Approximate height 13.5cm
Made in Bolivia

These are just what you would expect from the description and the photo. Lovely to hold, somehow sturdy but not too heavy. I agree with one of the other reviews.. a perfect alternative to the stemmed wine glass ….
I wanted some stem less wine glasses. These fitted the bill perfectly.
Shapely and finely made I love the fact that they are made from recycled glass by hand.
Great for wine, cocktails, OJ or water.
Worth the price.
Lovely to gift as well
