Glass Use in Anatolia
In Anatolia, glass was popularized by the Seljuk people from Central Asia. It is likely to come across the glass details of the mosques and madrasas from the period of Artuqids. Glass mosaics, houseware and many other works of art are exhibited in various museums in Turkey.
The conquest of Istanbul in 1453, led to the developments in the glass industry, and this material began to be popular. In the Republican Period, the modern glass factory, the foundations of which was laid in 1934, started production in 1937.
Today, glass is considered as a very healthy and safe container preserving the food and beverage. Glass containers are highly practical products with various benefits like preserving and keeping the smell inside. Glass, which is a very significant material for sustainable life and 100% recyclable, continues to be one of the most preferred products with its benefits to the environment and people.
