The Trademark Vetro Artistico® Murano is a proof of origin provided by the Veneto Region in compliance with the law 70, passed on December 23 1994. It certifies that products have been made on the island of Murano, according to glass making tradition. It is managed by Consorzio Promovetro.
Our workshop is located in Venice, in sestiere of Cannaregio, and as such cannot request this proof of origin. We assure, however, that all glass rods used by us to make our beads are made of certified glass, and that production takes place in its entirety in the island of Venice, either by us or by other esteemed venetian artisans. The techniques used in glass processing reflect the centuries-old venetian tradition of beadmaking.
For more information regarding the distinction between Murano and venetian glass, we refer to Glass History.
