Iittala Kastehelmi Jar, available in 3 colours,Clear, Grey & Desert and two sizes. The Kastehelmi range of glassware was designed in 1964 by Oiva Toikka. Kastehelmi was one of Toikka’s most popular designs and Iittala reintroduced a selection of the most popular pieces in 2010. These jars are a new addition to compliment this playful and textural range. Kastehelmi, brings a touch of interest to everyday moments with it's unqiue design, soft colours and beautiful shapes, the jars which are available in 2 sizes and can be used for storing things in the kitchen, for serving up on the dining table for nibbles, dips etc or for those little things anywhere in the house, cotton buds in the bathroom, jewellery in the bedroom, the possibilites are endless. The unique design of the lid means the jars are stackable too. Take a look at the matching tumblers in five colourways.
Toika's inspiration came form nature when he was looking for an affordable method to produce pressed glassware for everyday use and whilst experimenting he produced this new three - dimensional surface structure, which highlighted the light and played on the surface of the glass. Using a rotating drill with the mould, the pattern and structure created resembled the image of a pearl, or half pearl, and made the most beautiful shape. The name Kastehelmi, which translates as 'dewdrops' was inspired by the drops of dew that can be seen glistening on blades of grass, as the sunrises, like little rows of pearls which was the perfect name for this beautiful and versatile range. It coordinates in endless possibilities with the Teema, Taika, Kivi and Kartio ranges from Iittala to create your own individual look.

Care Instructions for Glassware:
The glass used in Iittala glassware is high quality and optically very clear. It resists both chemical and mechanical wear well. All of Iittala’s utility glasses can be washed in the dishwasher. The glasses should be positioned in the top rack of the dishwasher so that they do not touch each other during the wash cycle. The surface area of glass expands when heated and therefore glasses should not be stacked while still warm from washing as they then may stick together and break.
For hot drinks, use only glasses that are made of heat-resistant special glass - HotCool and Tsaikka. These glasses can also be used in microwave oven. All other Iittala glasses and glass pitchers are meant only for cold drinks and should not be used in microwave oven.
Delicate stemware, pitchers and jugs, mugs, large-footed dessert bowls and objects with glass of varying thickness should be washed by hand and we recommend hand wash only. To clean these items use regular dish washing detergent and a soft dish washing brush. Rinse well and leave to dry or dry with a soft cloth.
For glass vases we recommend hand washing. If there are stubborn stains on your flower vase, soak the vase in 1dl laundry detergent to one liter of water. Do not scrub, as scouring powder or abrasive scrubbing pads scratch and spoil the surface.
The so-called burning lens phenomenon may damage objects and surfaces in the vicinity of the glass object. To avoid this, do not leave a lens-shaped thick glass object or vase filled with water in direct sunlight.
