The A CUP collection is designed after a small size paper cup but is made of glass by hand. The texture mimics paper. This is a perfect glass for water or juice. It’s available in white glass as well as recycled glass.
SGHR Sugahara is working to have zero glass waste from our factory by recycling waste glass. This collection includes items that are made of 100% recycled glass. The discarded glass is collected, washed to remove any impurities and then melted down before being hand blown or placed in molds to create beautiful new products. Mixed colored glass results in a natural earthy hue from blue to green to carbon, which even our master artisans cannot predict or control. Each recycled piece is one of a kind causing the color to vary, as a result a few small bubbles or lines may occur due to the nature of waste glass. The items made of recycled glass are indicated as "Recycle" in the product name.
