The Atlas Works is a collaboration between two London based designers and a traditional factory in the Atlas Mountains, Morocco.
The range is a collection of purposeful products that combine modern design, beautiful materials and artisanal manufacturing techniques. All the glassware is handmade from recycled glass which means the colour and surface markings are unique to each item.
As well as reducing the amount of glass ending up in landfill, using recycled glass requires a lot less energy to produce due to its lower melting temperature than raw materials. Using recycled glass also reduces the amount of air and water pollution in production, with air pollution reduced by 20% and water pollution by 50%. Additionally, the production of our glassware does not use any chemicals or hazardous materials.
The UK produces roughly 11.5 million tons of packaging waste every year. To help combat this issue we ensure that all of our packaging is either recyclable or reused. We mainly use materials such as paper bubble wrap or compostable packing peanuts.
