The Finnish word kastehelmi means dewdrop, which refers to the rings of small glass beads that give each piece in the Kastehelmi Table and Giftware Collection by Iittala its distinct character. Originally designed by Oiva Toikka in 1964, the Kastehelmi series was relaunched in 2010.
Although designed from the start for everyday use, the beads in the glass make Kastehelmi ideal for anyone looking to put an individual stamp on their own home. And, just like every piece in all of our collections, the Kastehelmi clear glass plate works just as beautifully on its own as it does as part of a collection. Further, since each piece in this collection is dishwasher safe, maintenance is a breeze.
