Mauritius Glass Gallery
The Mauritius Glass Gallery was founded in 1991 by one of the largest beverage companies on the island and was set up with the mission to protect the environment by recycling glass waste.
We invite you to come and see our skilled craftsmen and glassblowers in action while they bring used glass bottles and other glass products back to life into a kaleidoscope of colours and shapes. Using centuries’ old methods and tools, you will also get to witness and learn about traditional glass blowing techniques at the museum.
Enjoy a handmade personalised Mauritian souvenir by having your own handprint or footprint sculpted in glass or by having your names engraved by one of our local artisans. Lock your holiday memories in a unique piece of art bought from one of the best places on the island for handcrafted “100% made in Mauritius” souvenirs. Note that all personalised products will be ready after 3 days and can either be delivered or collected at the gallery.
Do not miss the gallery’s pride, the “Misshapen wine glass” and the famous “Offset Glass”, with its unusual stem, a unique accidental product which has now become one of the gallery’s bestsellers.
