Upcycled swiss glassware
Nicknamed Les Ambivalents, they were initially intended to be both vases and carafes. As they evolved, their shape and weight were selected for a perfect grip when serving at table. Small or large, for water or for decanting wine, it's up to you.
Available in several collections, our glasses have been designed to satisfy different thirsts, uses or situations! The range of colours is also varied and above all evolving. So keep an eye out!
The vases are our favourite transformations. Les Bombés, are bottles that are selected among the many bottles in Bordeaux. Cut and polished by hand, we forget their original use. The advantage: assemble several vases in the centre of the table for an unexpected effect!
A glass is great! A candle is great too... But a candle that once burnt brings a glass to life is greater ! We select bottles suitable for candles, hand-poured them with 100% natural and European colza wax. The fragrances come from Grasse, are phthalate-free and as often as possible CMR-free too.
Objects with a pure and unique design : shapes, sizes or shades may vary from one to another.
That's our way towards zero waste.
How does it work at kulô?
Bottle collection and sorting
Firstly, thanks to partnerships with bars, restaurants and individuals, we regularly collect large quantities of bottles. Each bottle is then sorted according to its weight, size and shape in order to determine if it can be transformed into a product, and if so, which one.
De-labelling and cutting
This is a long and tedious process: the label on each bottle is removed by hand and with water as often as possible! After that, the bottles are cut one by one by batch of products of the same type.
Sanding and polishing
Each future product passes through the kulô workshop, one by one, in our hands, several times, to undergo the sanding stages until the final product is shiny, soft to the touch or pleasant to drink.
Engraving, wrapping and packaging. It takes 3 seconds to say and yet it is a rigorous step that sometimes plays tricks on us! Indeed, a fragile product deserves special attention before arriving at your home. Thank you!
