The names Orrefors and Kosta Boda are synonymous around the world with innovative design, matchless craftsmanship and the marriage of form and function. These two companies, now one, have been designing and making glass articles, art glass and custom glass in the Glasriket area for more than 250 years.
On a guided tour of the Orrefors factory you can watch the world famous glass being made in the hot-shop and see glass on display at the exhibition centre. Orrefors also arranges an event called ‘Foundry herring’, at which you can try glass blowing and then enjoy a drink and Småland delicacies afterwards at the Orrefors Inn.
You can also purchase seconds at bargain prices at the factory and there are factory outlets dotted around the ‘Glasriket’ area offering glass and crystal ware at very competitive prices.
