La Soufflerie Paris Handblown Glass
Enriching your Ancienne Ambiance experience is a brand we love...
La Soufflerie glass is made using ancient artisan techniques that were first developed c. 2000 years ago by the Phoenicians and Romans- pioneers of glass blowing. Paris-based, the family owned and operated company create the most iconic and unique glasses reminiscent of those created in antiquity and, just as in ancient times, each piece of artisanal glassware is made from recycled glass, making all La Soufflerie products sustainable.
Individually hand-blown, each piece of La Soufflerie glassware is one-of-a-kind and the raised ‘bellybutton’ mark underneath each item is a signature left by the glassblower’s cane.
The history of glass making dates back to at least 3600 years ago in Mesopotamia and the first glassmaking "manual" dates back to c. 650 BC. A significant industry in ancient times across many cultures, the 1st century AD saw a rapid technical growth with the introduction of glass blowing which revolutionised manufacture.
