What is Recycled MOP?
October 19th, 2012
When customizing our SLAB or PLANK products there are three steps to completing a customized order. One being choosing a resin color from our palette or a selected color the customer has provided as the base; next step is choosing the recycled aggregate. At GLASS RECYCLED we offer an array of glass, mode and mirror. In addition the aggregates we also offer mother of pearl, which contributes a subtle shine and pearly glow to a recycled glass application. All of our aggregates are recycled and then upcycled into our products, but one question we often receive is where does the recycled mother of pearl come from?
Our mother of pearl comes from recycled items such as buttons, art, and musical instruments and is delivered to us at our Dallas showroom and warehouse. We then take the mother of pearl and sort it into different sizes. Our most popular size is size two which is the largest of our recycled MOP.
MOP is not only visually appealing, but it also does a great job incorporating subtle tans, pinks, whites and purples. The colors and shine that the MOP adds into an environment serves a dual purpose- calming and soft appeal. Designers more times than not place our recycled MOP glass applications in bathrooms and kitchens in client’s homes and apartments.
A project which is underway not only stunning, but involves numerous shades of neutrals with hints of porcelain backed with a rich beige resin.
