Savotta OÜ

The sister company of Finn-Savotta Oy, our second production facility in Tartu, Estonia. Unlike our headquarters in Karstula where we do pretty much everything, our facilities in Tartu are 100% tooled up for sewing only. This is where we sew our large production runs of our regular textile products such as backpacks.
