The colors and shapes are beautiful, and of course each glass is a unique piece because it is blown without a mould, which is the most beautiful effect when they are presented together on a table.
Some glasses may have small inclusions. Each piece is handcrafted, so the intensity of the colours may vary slightly from one glass to another, which gives the whole set of glasses its character.
Discover THE DAR DAR HOUSE (formerly House of Aleppo) in our section "Brands & Designers" .
The DAR DAR House works with 2 glassblowers' workshops in Damascus. The work of these workshops is, of course, greatly affected by the particularly difficult situation in Syria over the last few years, as everyone knows.
The way of production had to deal with a smaller number of artisan blowers, and the high cost of fuel to run the kilns.
But these Syrian craftsmen continue to work, to exercise their trade according to an ancestral technique, to ensure their own subsistence, and for the transmission of this traditional know-how.
