Iittala - 100 Mates of Finland campaign


Iittala is a design brand that started it's worldwide journey from Finland. Scandinavian quality and design has brought this brand to Australia and as Finland celebrated it's centennial year of independence in 2017, Iittala Australia wanted to wish a happy birthday back to the Motherland. The 100 Mates of Finland project was initiated by the Embassy of Finland in Canberra with collecting well wishes from Down Under from various Finnish brands and Finns living overseas.
