I bought 3 of them and paid full price, bought the black and white one on sale. I adore these mugs. They are a perfect size for a serious coffee drinker like myself. I adore the Taika line. I wish I could buy more of the other pieces. Perhaps someday. I would also prefer if they were made in Finland rather than Taiwan, but so goes the world...
Beautiful Taika Mugs
August 18, 2012
These mugs are just beautiful in every way - the perfect mug for drinking from and I love the design. The quality is excellent. I saw the whole range when I was in Finland and loved it all - was just a bit too hard to carry back to Oz, so was very happy to find them online! I will be back for more!!!

I lkie the design on the mugs very much and the quality is good. My only complaint is that they are no longer being made in Finland but in Taiwan.

Just gotta Love 'em
August 24, 2011
...I previously purchased two of above mugs on a stopover in Finland enroute from UK to W.Australia. I loved them so much i wished I had purchased more so was very excited to find your ad when I searched for Finnish mugs.
ProsColour, gloss, size, shape, pattern, not too big and chunky to drink from.
Consno dislikes at all
I simply love the design

Like my favourite Satumetsä series, the Taika collection boasts a vibrant tune of colors and whimsical design. Except that this collection offers a choice of 3 colors.
I got this in blue and white/blue and the former looks better with the shade and color contrast.
I'm just hoping that there will be further discounts for this Mug or even the entire series so I can buy more!
Amazing drinking mugs
March 31, 2011
I love the iittala mugs as they feel so smooth in your hand as you have a lovely long warm drink.
Also they arrived in my home in Australia within a week and half of me ordering them. Couldn't be happier with the mugs and of course Finnstyle, and I will be ordering again soon. Thank you so much.
Fantastic Finnish Coffee Mugs

I am in the process of updating my crockery and these mugs are beautiful. Finnish products are amazing. Also, the price is excellent. I was in Finland June 2007 and couldn't purchase at this price. Finnstyle are doing an awesome job. Kiitos!
ProsDifferent, not many people have this product.

They are beautiful! Colors are radiant, they are not too fragile but very much china-like. They are exactly what I expected and hoped for!
