Atelier Torbjörn Tillander’s story starts from St. Petersburg in 1860. Alexander E. Tillander, the grandfather of the grandfather of the current manager, Tina Tillander, left Helsinki for St. Petersburg at the tender age of 11 and opened his first goldsmith shop at 23. The shop became successful and supplied goods to the family of Tsar Nikolai II, for instance. The Revolution forced the Tillander family to relocate their business to their home country, Finland. After a few generations of Tillanders, Torbjörn Tillander became the director of the company’s goldsmith workshop. He then went on to establish his own atelier, where he focused on designing and creating exclusive made-to-order products for private customers.
Atelier Torbjörn Tillander continues this tradition today, with Torbjörn’s daughter, Tina at the wheel of the company. Appreciation of traditional working methods on one hand and courage to try out new things on the other hand are some of Atelier Torbjörn Tillander’s strengths. These result in carefully hand-crafted, unique, and valuable creations we can be proud of.
We are delighted to have our own workshop, as it supports the continuation of Finnish handicrafts, which is something we passionately wish to do. Running advanced production facilities at the centre of Helsinki is a very unusual solution, but it helps us ensure we fulfil our strict requirement of high quality. Seamless collaboration with customer service personnel, designers, and goldsmiths results in jewellery of utter perfection.
You can find our boutique at Kluuvikatu 1, right in the heart of Helsinki. You are warmly welcome to visit us and find a future family heirloom.
