The logo serves as a symbol of quality craftsmanship, timeless design, and thoughtful functionality. Many collectors ... More iittala

The best products
I ordered 6 sets of Taika in white and 6 sets in blue ( mugs and bowls) from a company in the USA and 12 sets of red from a company in Finland in 2009 as the red was not marketed in US at that time. I still use some of them daily, and they all look brand new. I also used them as a gift which were very well received. They are the most interesting design with mythical and mystical elements. I ordered 2 mugs of Tanssi, just to have an interesting mug for my coffee which arrived this morning. Beautifully packaged! I would be very happy if someone gave me these as a gift! If you are interested in a very unusual, artistic, mythical and mystical design, you should think about ordering them now for yourself or gifts. The price is reduced compared to what I paid several years go.
Pros I used them daily for my coffee or tea. I have some cups and bowls still in the original package. It is difficult to ditinguish between brand new mug and old one in any color.
ConsThere is nothing I can say negative about the products, order process and updates, packaging and delivery.
