HAVI’S -collection starts a new era to the story of Havi

Story of Havi in a nutshell
Havi can be considered as the very first industrial candle manufacturer in Finland. On November 6th 1829, wholesaler Anton Alfthan commenced the candle production. Alfthan based the factory in Karelian Isthmus.
In 1839, the plant capacity was expanded and Afthan moved the plant to Vyborg, to the Havi district. This is where Havi received its name from. As The Winter War (Talvisota) broke a military conflict between the Soviet Union and Finland, Havi’s factory had to be evacuated from Vyborg. Factory moved to Riihimäki and has stayed there ever since.
