kosta boda

Kosta Boda is a Swedish glas manufacturer that was founded in 1742. The name originated as a mix of the founder´s name General Koskull and Stael von Holstein. The glas house is located in a small city called Kosta in the Swedish province Småland. The location is directly in the middle between Stockholm and Karlskrona and therefore has easy access to materials like wood.
