Xaquixe is a locally run glass studio in Oaxaca, Mexico. Each piece is made by hand, from start to finish, and made to order. The artisans come from rural communities and towns outside of the city and have spent countless hours learning the techniques and skills to create this special glassware. From the local employees to the resources around the shop, every element of Xaquixe is purposeful and responsible. Ovens run on recycled leftover oils from hotels and restaurants within Oaxaca’s city limits, recycled bottles are crushed and reused, and recently began using biodigestation to allow for the use of organic waste to generate energy.
