VAJA Finaland was born from the passion towards high-quality, classical and practical products.

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.

Scandinavian  design and finnish quality

VAJA Finland was born in 2011 from the need to create high-quality and timeless tableware without forgetting good usability. The design of the products is elegant and reduced, combined with graphic, decorative patterns. The stackable cups and multi-purpose dishes made of vitroporcelain are dishwasher, microwave and oven safe. 

The high-quality products are manufactured in our own factory with traditional craftsmanship. The product development department operating in the heart of the factory works in close cooperation with the designers and production, and ensures the excellent quality of the products in terms of design, materials and product finishing. 

Our operations are located in Porvoo, a small town in Finland known for its handicraft tradition.
