Over four hundred years ago, in 1607, King Karl IX of Sweden founded Skultuna as a brass foundry, with the ambition to reduce imports of brass and instead increase the country’s income from exports. Braziers were drafted from existing foundries from Germany and the Netherlands, and with them they brought expertise on how to make large brass objects. In its centuries old history the company has dealt with floods and fires, but it has battled against the odds to become an internationally recognised brand. Having been awarded numerous design awards Skultuna now often exhibit at design fairs across Europe, working with renowned designers to produce beautifully designed, quality home accessories from brass.More from Skultuna
