The Riihimäki glassworks was founded in 1910, in the town of Riihimäki, Finland, by M. A. Kolehmainen and his son A. P. Kolehmainen. At first they made domestic glass and container glass, and began making glass bottles and window glass in 1919.

Riihimäki became the largest glass factory in Finland after buying the Kaukalahti glassworks in 1927. The company was renamed Riihimäen Lasi Oy in 1937, and Aimo Okkolin began designing for Riihimäki in the same year.

Helena Tynell joined Riihimäki in 1949, followed by Nanny Still in 1949, and Tamara Aladin in 1959. Together these four were chief designers for Riihimäki over the next 20 years, and produced a great many popular designs which can still be easily found today.
