ARABIA - FINLAND COLLECTION

Arabia’s first factory buildings, for the manufacture of porcelain, earthenware and other types of pottery, were erected in 1874 on a plot of land carrying the same name on the northern outskirts of Helsinki. The buildings were commissioned by the Swedish ceramics factory, Rörstrand, which had been given permission by the Senate to establish a subsidiary in Finland on 25 November 1873. Production started in the Arabia porcelain factory in October 1874. Ceramics production in Finland was still in its infancy at the time, but demand was growing at a fast rate thanks to the booming economy. The Swedish company was really more interested in the Russian markets, but access through Finland via the Arabia factory was easier due partly to the lower import duties. Skilled workers were brought over from Sweden, supplemented by craftsmen recruited from other Finnish potteries. At the beginning of 1875, Arabia already employed 110 people. Within just a couple of years, the value of the output from the factory accounted for half of the total annual ceramics production in the whole country. http://www.arabia.fi/en/Arabia-Story/History
