In the tiny African Kindgom of Swaziland a small group of Swazi craftsmen and women – with age old artistry – breath life into enchanting interpretations of the animals and birds of Africa, imbuing each with its own irresistible personality.

The products, which include a range of tableware, drinking glasses, vases, jugs and ornamental African animals, are all handmade from recycled glass. Most of this is from soft drink bottles, gathered from all over Swaziland .

Not only are the people of Swaziland encouraged to collect the bottles, but Ngwenya Glass works with the local schools to instil in the children a sense of environmental awareness. In exchange for building materials and the sponsorship of the soccer team, the students participate in roadside clean-up campaigns.

Minor bubbles, blowing lines and variations in height and thickness are unavoidable in mouth blown glass and constitute clearest proof of an article individually handmade from 100% recycled glass
