The Murano Collection from Native Trails is a perfect representation of combining age-old artisan techniques and materials with contemporary design and function. For 1500 years, glass artisans in Italy have been working their furnaces to produce both useful and beautiful pieces that are seen around the world. Utilizing techniques handed down for centuries from Bronze Age glass makers through Egypt, the Romans and on to Venice, Murano has been the center for glassmaking in the modern world since the 13th century.
Today, Murano Glass is still revered as some of the finest in the world and the Murano Collection from Native Trails is a reflection of our mission to help artisans bring their craftsmanship into markets beyond their reach. By infusing the soul of these handcrafted vessel sinks into interior designs all over North America and beyond, we feel these spaces will be enhanced with the ancient-modern sense of this functional art.
The Murano Collection consists of five Design Series that incorporate colors and patterns inspired by views of the Italian coastline.
