Arabia is not only Finland's oldest ceramics factory but it is certainly one of the most respected. Names like Kaj Franck, Ulla Procope, Toini Muona and Birger Kaipianen have come and gone as the studio has undergone dramatic changes. Initially a subsidiary of Rorstrand, created to produce lines for the Russian market, Arabia became its own entity from 1900. Since Hackman acquired the company in 1990, Arabia has seen a resurgence of innovation in its ceramics with contributions from the likes of Stefan Lindfors, Kati Tuominen-Niittyla and Harri Koskinen. We particularly love the illustrated pieces from the sixties and seventies and sell them on the site. Email for news of our latest Arabia pieces.
