The story of Iittala began in 1881 when a glass factory was founded in the village of Iittala. That is where the world-famous design history of Iittala begins. The factory is still operating, and it is where the best known Finnish glass design artefact, Alvar Aalto’s Aalto or Savoy vase, is made.

At the Iittala Glass Factory you can follow the production of all kinds of glass artefacts, as talented glassblowers create Aalto vases as well as Oiva Toikka birds from molten glass. The factory is nowadays part of the Fiskars Corporation.
