The manufacturing process of BELDI GLASS is to recycle two tons of flat glass and bottles wastes per day, remelted in a furnace heated to about 1600 degrees and kept at temperature 24 hours 24. The blown glasses are cut by hand using a oxygen and gas flame. The debris go back to the melting, while the glasses are placed in an annealed furnace for 3 hours. Then they are washed and transported on a carriage rail to their storage location.
This handmade product manufactured since 1940 and 100% Moroccan, had yet to know a dramatic destiny : in June 2013, the last the glass factory in the country (Sover, in Ain Sebaa - Casablanca) put the key under the door, leaving customers and employees in a state of abandonment. Because he could not resign himself to the disappearance of this iconic object, produced by a know-how inherited from father to son, the Beldi group undertook to restart the activity by giving it a modern factory, built with old teams of Sover inside the Beldi Country Club.
Each piece is unique. It may have scratches, marks, colour variations due to the handcrafted nature. The images are guide only.
