Kalevala is a design company which was set up in the 1930s by Finnish women who began selling jewellery with the aim of funding a statue but their income was actually to help women and families who were victims of war. The company is still active and uses its dividends to support Finnish cultural work. In 2005 Kalavala acquired the acclaimed jewellery company Lapponia.
