TOLEDO, OHIO, March 5, 2016 – (NYSE MKT: LBY) Home entertainers want glassware that enhances, not hides, their cocktail creations. While the majority of consumers prefer clear glass, increasingly they’re looking for textures to add a distinctive element to their glassware. Bring the textured glass trend to your celebrations with Stratus and Caldera from Libbey®.
“We’re seeing a growing interest in glassware with design elements including texture,” said Amy Miles, senior manager of global branding and digital for Libbey Inc. “These features add to the look and presentation of the drink and enhance everyday celebrations.”
The Stratus and Caldera patterns, both part of the Be Social™ collection of premium glassware, feature striking textures that are visually appealing and elevate special moments at home.
Stratus evokes the look of rain trickling down a windowpane, creating an attention-grabbing look while the textured design of Caldera calls to mind the appearance of ice coating a window. Both patterns offer eye-catching appeal to elevate the appearance of the beverage in the glass.
Both Stratus and Caldera are available as four-glass sets in Cooler and Double Old-Fashioned styles that complement a variety of entertaining needs.
Be Social is a collection of premium glassware designed to enhance the experience of casual entertaining.
