We were searching for some jugs and pitchers for iced tea for quite a while. Not only was it hard to find glass jugs that were fairtrade, but it was also hard to find glassware that was simply functional and beautiful. Until we discovered Blenko. Blenko Glass Company has been producing glassware in America since 1893, right in the heart of West Virginia. Their pieces are hand blown, sturdy, and super versatile.
