Finnish fashion company Luhta was founded in 1907. From a two-person company it grew steadily, and by the 1940s Luhta went from offering a small number of products to producing a wide range of clothing. Luhta now has many successful fashion brands and its range includes items for men, women and children, as well as for the house, such as catwalk-inspired fashion from Ril’s, homeware from Leinikki and laid-back pieces from the modern Luhta label.
