The Kumela factory was established 1937, and it stayed in the hands of the same family for the majority of its years until closed in 1985. The factory went through a long winding road facing many challenges with the changing Finnish society as well as the changes faced in glass manufacturing. It played an important part in producing some iconic designs of Finnish glass from the 20th Century.
