When working at Arabia factory we were brought together because of our mutual interest in the challenges that working with ceramic material brings, and our respect for finnish handcraft skills. This was the beginning of the VAJA story, although we did’nt realise it yet at that point.
We moved to a small city by the sea, approximately 100 km east of Helsinki, named Lovisa. This idyllic city with the sea and the forests nearby gave us a lot of inspiration, so we decided to try what the outcome would be, if we would combine the expertise of a ceramic model maker and a designer. We renovated a shed in our big garden, and there we started the planning, product developmet and production of our own product family.
Gradually the idea of a brand arouse, that would combine our values. The utensils made with big passion, finnish quality and functional design are the cornerstones of our collection. From day one it was also clear, that our production stays in Finland in our own factory. This way we ensure high quality products and an ethic production chain.
Today our production is located in Porvoo, a city that is known for its handcraft traditions. We have a bunch of professionals from the ceramic industry working with us. We at VAJA Finland create beautiful and smart design that surprises with its functionality and remains to generations to come.
