Kismet Recycled Glass - Product Info
Where do the Kismet Recycled Mosaic tiles come from?
The Kismet line of recycled glass tile is manufactured in Istanbul, Turkey. Another bonus - they are from recycled glass. The factory in Istanbul recycles crushed window glass from a nearby window pane company to a fine powder and adds natural oxides. This is recycling at its best! They are not poured into a mold; instead they use a 'sintered' process which stamps the raw material into individually pressed mosaic shapes. Conveyed through a linear kiln, these small pieces emerge after fusing and annealing as the strongest, most durable glass mosaic on the market.
The result is 60 beautiful colors in 3 different finishes and several sizes and shapes. That equals over 360 choices just in the 8mm and 12mm! I do not know of any other line with such a vast color palette. In addition, they cut like a dream - no glass dust or debris. Kismet provides lots of colors and even more values of the same hue. In addition, the 8mm are so small I barely have to do any cutting - I love that! People with arthritis enjoy the 8mm pieces as it's so small it often doesn't need to be cut at all!
