Do you know how Kalevala jewelry is made? If not, now you have a chance to see how precious metals take shape in the skilled hands of experienced goldsmiths at Kalevala jewelry factory. You may be surprised to see how many steps it takes to turn the designer’s vision into a finished piece of jewelry, and how much traditional handiwork – even today – is still involved in the manufacturing process. Part of the Helsinki Design Week program Kalevala Koru, the largest Finnish jewelry manufacturer, gives guided tours to its factory premises in Konala, Helsinki September 7-9. The tours are free of charge and include a bus transport from Kiasma and back. When visiting the factory you can also discover rare Kalevala pieces at the Kalevala Outlet & Experience Store.

Helsinki Design Week factory tours are full.
