Story

When Valentina and Sébastien Nobile founded the non-profit La Soufflerie in 2007, they had a noble cause – to keep the art of glassblowing alive in Paris. And they’ve come a long way from selling their magnificent vases from the back of their bicycles in the 15th district of old Paris. They now operate glassblowing factories around the world.

All their exquisite pieces are handblown from 100% recycled glass – making them sustainable and ethical. And multipurpose – a vase can double as a candle holder or maybe a carafe. That head & face glass could be a vase or a pencil holder. And a very important aspect of the line – these elegant glass pieces are not only functional and beautiful, but their creation keeps an important skill alive.

La Soufflerie

La Soufflerie is a non-profit glass blowing organization created by Valentina and Sébastien Nobile in Paris. Though they started out with just four vases, sold from the back of their bicycles, they now produce a full range of exquisite hand-blown glassware. The pieces are handblown by master artisans – and every piece is unique.

Sébastien had been dabbling in the art of glassblowing when he realized that 100% mouth-blown glass was a dying art. At the time there were fewer than five professional glassblowers in the Paris region. Hearing this, the couple founded La Soufflerie, a non-profit organization that gives all its proceeds back to the glassblowers to keep the art alive.
