An enthusiastic welcome

With Finland recently having paid off the last of its war debt, Finns were pleased with the success that Finnish industrial art began to experience in international competitions. The press reported very favourably on the endeavours of young Kaija Aarikka. She was even interviewed on television, and just three years after the founding of the company, Aarikka had become a household name.
