Kastehelmi – Finnish for "dewdrop"

Iittala's beloved Kastehelmi series is easily recognisable by its ornate pattern, which resembles strings of pearls or morning dewdrops on plants. These distinctive glass droplets were born when designer Oiva Toikka explored ways to cover the seam marks left on pressed glass objects. The small beads do indeed cover up the seams, but also give Kastehelmi votives and tableware a truly unique look.

What does the Kastehelmi series include?

Kastehelmi candle holders are available in countless different colours, making them excellent gift ideas – from the extensive range, you'll surely find a suitable shade, whether the recipient is a fan of blue, green, or classic clear glass. Additionally, the collection includes tableware and vases.
