Kosta Boda began in 1742 in the heart of the Swedish forests in the province of Småland. The highly appreciated brand is well-known for its bold and innovative glassware and glass art, from drinking glasses and bowls to candle holders and sculptures.
Kosta glassworks was founded on the 26th of July 1742 in Sweden, by Generals Anders Kostkull and George Bogislaus Staël von Honstein.
The location in Småland in southern Sweden was chosen so that they would be able to provide glass to the important Swedish cities, Stockholm and Karlskrona, as important roads passed here. In addition, the dense forests in the region offered them an unlimited supply of wood to heat the furnaces for the glass production.
Today, Kosta Boda is the oldest operating glassworks in Sweden and produces innovative glass and art glass that challenges the present.
