Finding Our Patented Lead-Free Glass “ C-Series “

Kinari GlassLead, because of its toxicity, can often times be harmful for humans as well as the environment.

The fumes created by the lead during the glass making process can also be hazardous as well, creating a dangerous work environment. Kinari Glass wanted to change this; so, we created out our own.

We created a highly water-resistant, sustainable, lead-free glass titled “C-Series”, which was patented in 2011.

The C-Series glass was created to ensure the longevity of our product, as well as keeping the quality high at reasonable prices

Our business areas

Manufacturing glass rods

Manufacturing glass rods

We are continuously working towards research that will provide our valued customers with glasses of many colors, adding onto the 100 unique colors we already provide. We make sure to carefully craft each color, as the weather and humidity often affect the colors. Each glass rod is carefully handcrafted, meaning that no two rods will be exactly same, providing our customers with a fresh, unique look.
