Glass bubbling occurs as a part of the handmade process. This process may also lead to the occurrence of black specks within the glass.
Every purchase empowers artisans living among the most underprivileged areas of Egypt. Through their work, they earn a sustainable income and preserve cultural crafts across generations. Broken glass is given a new life through eco-conscious practices — the raw materials are sourced locally in the Greater Cairo area and then recycled, melted, hand-blown, and sanded to create intricate glassware.

To begin the process, Makra purchases the raw material, including used glass bottles, by color from garbage segregation centers in the Greater Cairo area. The artisans then clean the glass and place the raw material in a hot oven to melt. Based on the product, colors are added. After the glass has thoroughly melted, the artisan will blow the glass according to the desired shape and design. The pieces are set to cool in another oven, sanded, cleaned, and packaged. Artisans at Makra are preserving time-honored cultural techniques while following eco-conscious practices.
