Kosta Boda is one of the world’s leading brands of glassware and art glass. Technology and an understanding of glass have been refined here in the heart of the forests in the Swedish province of Småland ever since 1742.

The glassworks in Kosta was founded in 1742. The name was created from the surnames of the founders, Generals Koskull and Staël von Holstein. Kosta’s location, in the heart of the dense forests in the Swedish province of Småland, was chosen so that the glassworks could provide both Stockholm and Karlskrona with glass. Important roads crossed here, and there was also an unlimited supply of wood to heat the furnaces.
