#RSGCOLLECTIONS: LA VERRE BELDI GLASS COLLECTION

It has always been the dream of our amazing co-founders, Jane Rockett and Lucy St George, to source original, authentic and unique Moroccan products for Rockett St George and on their recent trip to Morocco, they were lucky enough to meet with some really inspirational artisans and artists who have made this dream come true. A collection of original Berber Rugs, Authentic Tamegroute Pottery, Handwoven Pom Pom Blankets and more the beauty of this unique collection lies in the story behind each product. So in this blog, we are going to explore the story behind our beautiful new Moroccan Glassware...


THE BELDI GLASS STORY

Our La Verre Beldi Glassware has a humble beginning. Made from locally recycled glass, the Conical Moroccan Glass Highball and the Recycled Moroccan Glass Tumbler is manufactured using a proven process used for half a century. Originally intended to serve tea, the classical glass with an RSG twist is handblown so features its own unique quirks and individual markings that add to its beautiful authenticity.

However, in 2013 this authentic glassblowing process was jeopardised after the owners could no longer keep the business running. Leaving its staff and customers in a state of abandonment and risking the disappearance of the iconic glassware that had been passed down from father to son. The Beldi Group, who own the Beldi Country Club in Marrakesh, saved the company from closing its doors forever and have thankfully ensured the continued production of these beautiful glasses. - La Verre Beldi is the last and only hand-blown glassware manufacturer in Morocco.

Recycled Moroccan Glass Tumbler £4.00 | Conical Recycled Moroccan Glass Highball £10.00

A beautiful story, we thought that it is certainly worth mentioning that the Beldi Country Club in Marrakech is an out-of-this-world, hotel, spa and restaurant that this definitely worth checking out ... Or should we say checking-in! Featuring stunning grounds, swimming pools, souks, spas, luxury hotel rooms and exquisite beauty, the Beldi Country Club never fails to inspire us...

  • […] When it comes to styling a beautiful summer tablescape, little details such as glassware can make all the difference. We recommend styling a few glasses such as water glasses, wine goblets and champagne saucers around your plates and bowls and fill jugs with your favourite cocktail mixtures for your guests to enjoy. In our opinion glassware is under-rated when it comes to table styling - glasses reflect light which can be particularly magical when you are enjoying a sunset dinner. Of course, we couldn't kick our 5 Top Tips off without mentioning beautiful La Verre Beldi Glassware!. These glasses have a lovely story behind them which we unearthed in our recent blog post. […]
