MOTA Glass


      Latina and Veteran owned company. American made. Ethical AF. 

      MOTA Glass launched in November 2020 to address two major issues in the functional glass industry­­. First, the mass importing of functional glass which lowers quality and devalues local production. Second, the continued marginalization of an overworked and underpaid minority workforce. 

      They're a Los Angeles-based glass company that not only produces high-quality, locally-made functional borosilicate glass, but also provides stable jobs with livable wages and career pathways
