oh i feel so bad writing this cause i have a kitchen full of awesome teema...but fiskars group, which now owns and manufactures the teema line, is making more and more of it in asia, and is increasingly dodgy about it. i say this because my last order of white teema from Iittala contained dinner plates, cups and saucers, a teapot, and a milk jug (and of course it's all wonderful)...but it is all from thailand. i worry that fiskars is tarnishing this great line and i'd like them to be more transparent about their practices (for a lot of reasons). it's such an important design, emblematic of finland (and marketed as such), and so i must admit that i was sad to pay for finnish production, design, history, and craft, and receive...well i don't know.
