Pieces from the special edition recycled glass collection by iittala make the perfect give for those who seek to reuse, repurpose, and recycle - as well as those who love one-of-a-kind treasures.

Each is still made with a wooden mold and quality virgin materials to be of the same durable quality Finland is known for, just with a focus on sustainable style. Each is specially engraved to say "RECYCLED iittala" on the base, and even the famous "i" red logo sticker notes its recycled material.
