Masters of colour
With over a thousand secret colour recipes and an extensive colour palette, Iittala’s mastery of pigments and colours is unique in the world.
Our dual ability to create monochromatic tones as well as a palette that varies from light to medium to intense is rare. It requires a deep understanding of glass and the willingness to experiment with. Iittala’s colour experts and glassblowers work with specialists and colour professionals to make the impossible possible.
Best raw materialsWe start with the best quality raw materials. The Iittala Glass Factory receives two thousand tons of fine Belgium sand that forms the base mass along with other ingredients. The led-free base mass is vibrant, bubble-free and without imperfections, which allows for a wide variety of shades.
Colour is in our heart and soul
