Don't waste your time to go there if you're looking for bargains. All except very few items are sold at full price. The selection was however good, and it might be worth the visit if you appreciate the design and just want to browse. Large range of items from Iittala, Marimekko and Fiskars, among other brands.

Take tram no. 6 out here - it's easy. The selection of Iittala homewear (and Fiskars and some other brands) is impressive and well-arranged. The prices is about 20% lower for Quality 2 - and exactly the same than in the city for Quality 1. You should only go here if you are really interested in Iittala (or Fiskars...). If... More

I'm puzzled by some of the negative reviews on this site. I have been going to the Arabia Factory Outlet for many years and, yes, sometimes, the special offers are better than other times but usually there are some very good 'finds'. In addition, there is the chance to buy seconds on many items and pay full price (no higher... More

Stay away, there are only a handful of homewares shops and they offer no discounts or clearance items. A big waste of time in a dead part of town

As long time collectors of Arabia Finland, and having read the reviews we didn't expect bargains but that is not why we went. We enjoyed the Museum which was well displayed - I suppose there wouldn't be the room to present all products over the last 100 or so years. There are other companies under the Iittala umbrella but we... More

Arabisa Facory Shop, is a huge building located in Arabia Disrict, northeast of the city of Helsinki. There are many kind of home accessories there, and of course Finnish-made. Iittala, Finnish well-known brand, has a shop there. There is also a Museum in the 3rd floor. I think it's worth to visit, if you love design.
