Outlet for Finnish design

This is the place to be for fans of Finnish design. At the old Arabia factory in Arabia (yes, the area is named after the company) you find outlet stores of the most important and well known Finnish design brands. 

Since iittala, Fiskars, Arabia and Hackmann belong to the same company you can find all their products in the shop right at the entrance of the building. They have quite good offers. Also take a look at the shelf with the second class products. They have small mistakes (that you can barely see) and are reduced dramatically.
If you don’t find anything here, continue to one of the other shops that are in the building. Browse through the Pentik shop. Next to the café in the middle of the center you find a shop where you can take a look at design products from smaller brands.

This place is worth a visit. You also easily get there with public transport with tram line 6 or bus number 71. The center is open every day from 10 and stays open till 20.00 during the week and till 16.00 on the weekend.
